Manuel has $54 to buy CDs and books. Each CD costs$9, and each book costs $6. He wants to buy exactly 7 items to spend all of his money. Write a system of equations that could be solved to determine the number of CDs and the number of books Manuel buys. ### Answer & Explanation l1koV Skilled2021-02-13Added 100 answers Let c be the number of CDs and b be the number of books that he buys. Since he buys exactly 7 items, then $b+c=7$. If each CD costs$9 dollars, then he will spend 9c dollars buying cc CDs. If each book costs $6, then he will spend 6b dollars buying bb books. The total amount he spends is then $6b+9c$. Since he has$54 to spend, then $6b+9c=54$.
The system of equations is then $\left\{b+c=7,6b+9c=54\right\}$
