Chicken costs 1.00 and supplies 100g of protein, Rice costs .50 and 20g. Shellfish costs 3.00 and 50g.?
if the resulting paella weighs 18lbs, costs 19.00 and supplies 850g of protein, how much rice, chicken, and shellfish were used? (paella is a spanish dish)
Players Club Tours answers:
Based on the information supplied it is possible to set up three algebraic equations, one for the total weight, one for the total cost, and one for the amount of protein. Using C= weight of chicken; R= weight of rice; S= weight of shellfish then: C+R+S=18 100C+20R+50S=850 C+.5R+3S=19 Solving these equations for the unknowns results in Chicken= 5 Rice=10 Shellfish= 3
