Hello!! everybody.....

Today in class we did our pre-test but before that, we work on Analytic Geometry #8

here's the question...

8. The total number of known moons around Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune is 43. The total number of moons around Saturn and Neptune is 9 more than the number of moons around Uranus. Saturn has 2 moons more than twice the number of moons around Neptune. Find the number of moons each planet has.

To solve this problem you have to do the following:

To solve this problem you have to do the following:

- first, you have to find the equation
- Then when you have the equation, set it up so it will be easy for you to solve it.
- Then when solving it, you can use elimination or substitution

here's the equations..

S = # of moons around Saturn

U = # of moons around Uranus

N = # of moons around Neptune

S + U + N = 43

S + N = U + 9

S = 2 + N

U = # of moons around Uranus

N = # of moons around Neptune

S + U + N = 43

S + N = U + 9

S = 2 + N
