Bakery Products. TheMill Avenue Bakery packages its products in three sizes: one-half-pound, one-pound, and two-pound packages. In determining the total weight of the bakery’s products loaded on a delivery truck, let x1 denote the number of one-half-pound packages, x2 the number of one-pound packages, x3 ­the number of two-pound packages. Let y denote the total weight of bakery packages on the truck. a. Obtain the equation that expresses y in terms of x1, x2 and x3. b. Find b0, b1, b2 and b3. c. What is the change in the total weight for an increase of one two-pound package, provided the number of one-half- and one-pound packages does not change? d. Find the total weight of the bakery’s product on the delivery truck if there are 100 one-half-pound packages, 200 one-pound packages, and 30 two-pound packages.

Question

Bakery Products. TheMill Avenue Bakery packages its products in three sizes: one-half-pound, one-pound, and two-pound packages. In determining the total weight of the bakery’s products loaded on a delivery truck, let x1 denote the number of one-half-pound packages, x2 the number of one-pound packages, x3 ­the number of two-pound packages. Let y denote the total weight of bakery packages on the truck.

a. Obtain the equation that expresses y in terms of x1, x2 and x3.

b. Find b0, b1, b2 and b3.

c. What is the change in the total weight for an increase of one two-pound package, provided the number of one-half- and one-pound packages does not change?

d. Find the total weight of the bakery’s product on the delivery truck if there are 100 one-half-pound packages, 200 one-pound packages, and 30 two-pound packages.
