$s=\frac{d}{t}$

$s\times t=d$

Since the distance is equal, we can state the following, where x is the time in hours the express train takes.

$48(x+2)=80x$

$48x+96=80x$

$96=32x$

$3=x$

It takes 3 hours to make the trip.

$80\times 3=240$

The distance is 240 kilometers.

A small grocer finds that the monthly sales y (in $) can be approximated as a function of the amount spent advertising on the radio ${x}_{1}$

(in $) and the amount spent advertising in the newspaper${x}_{2}$ (in $) according to $y=a{x}_{1}+b{x}_{2}+c$

The table gives the amounts spent in advertising and the corresponding monthly sales for 3 months.

$\begin{array}{|ccc|}\hline \text{Advertising,}{x}_{1}& \text{Advertising,}{x}_{2}& \text{sales, y}\\ \$2400& \$800& \$36,000\\ \$2000& \$500& \$30,000\\ \$3000& \$1000& \$44,000\\ \hline\end{array}$

a) Use the data to write a system of linear equations to solve for a, b, and c.

b) Use a graphing utility to find the reduced row-echelon form of the augmented matrix.

c) Write the model$y=a{x}_{1}+b{x}_{2}+c$

d) Predict the monthly sales if the grocer spends $250 advertising on the radio and $500 advertising in the newspaper for a given month.
