System of Equations Sample Post

At a dog park, there were a total of 18 dogs and people combined.  There were a total of 50 legs on the dogs and people.  How many dogs and people were at the park?

 

Let d = number of dogs at the park; then 4d = total number of legs on the dogs.

Let p = number of people at the park; then 2p = total number of legs on the people.

 

Equation 1:  The total number of dogs and people at the park is 18:  d + p = 18

Equation 2:  The total number of legs at the park is 50:  4d + 2p = 50

 

Use substitution to solve the system of equations.

Solve Equation 1 for p by subtracting d from each side:  p = 18 – d

Substitute 18 – d for p in Equation 2 and then solve for d:

                4d + 2(18 – d) = 50

                4d + 36 – 2d = 50               distribute on the left side

                2d + 36 = 50                        combine like terms on the left side

                2d = 14                                  subtract 36 from each side

                d = 7                                      divide both sides by 2

 

If d = 7, then p = 18 – 7 = 11. 

Check number of legs:  4(7) + 2(11) = 28 + 22 = 50.

So there were seven dogs and eleven people at the park.
