A:

Question:Each chef at "sushi emperor" prepares 15 regular rolls and 20 vegetarian rolls daily. On tuesday, each customer ate 2 regular rolls & 3 vegetarian rolls. by the end of the day, 4 regular rolls & 1 vegetarian roll remained uneating. how many chefs were on tuesday ? and how many customers were they ?Answer:There were 2 chefs and 13 customers on tuesdaySolution:Let x be the number of chefs at Sushi Emperor and y be the number of customers on Tuesday.From given,Each chef prepares 15 regular rolls and 20 vegetarian rolls dailyIf each chef prepares 15 regular rolls, then x chefs prepare 15x regular rollsIf each customer ate 2 regular rolls, then y customers ate 2y regular rollsBy the end of the day, 4 regular roll remained un eatingTherefore,15x - 2y = 4 --------- eqn 1If each chef prepares 20 vegetarian rolls, then x chefs prepare 20x vegetarian rollsIf each customer ate 3 vegetarian rolls, then y customers ate 3y vegetarian rollsBy the end of the day, 1 vegetarian roll remained uneatingTherefore,20x - 3y = 1 ---------- eqn 2Let us solve eqn 1 and eqn 2Multiply eqn 1 by 345x - 6y = 12 ------- eqn 3Multiply eqn 2 by 240x - 6y = 2 ------- eqn 4Subtract eqn 4 from eqn 345x - 6y = 1240x - 6y = 2( - ) --------------5x = 10x = 2Substitute x = 2 in eqn 120(2) - 3y = 140 - 3y = 13y = 39y = 13Thus there were 2 chefs and 13 customers
