On Monday a computer manufacturing company sent out 3 shipments.
First Order is for \$114,000
4 model II, 6 model VI, 10 model IX computers
Second Order is for \$72,000
8 model II, 3 model VI, 5 model IX
Third order is for \$81,000
2 model II, 9 model VI, 5 model IX

What does the manufacturer charge for a Model VI computer? galactus Posts: 2,271, Reputation: 282 Ultra Member #2 Aug 3, 2009, 09:24 AM
Set up a system of equations.

Let x=price of Model II
Let y=price of Model VI
Let z=price of Model IX

4x+6y+10z=114,000
8x+3y+5z=72,000
2x+9y+5z=81,000

Solve the system. When you find the value of y, that is the price of the Model VI.
