Protein Supplements Exercises 45-48 are based on the following data on three popular protein supplements. (Figures shown correspond to a single serving)5 Protein (g) Carbohydrates (g) Sodium (mg) Cost ($) Designer Whey (Next) 18 2 80 0.50 Muscle Milk (Cytosport) 32 16 240 1.60 Pure Whey Protein Stack (Champion) 24 3 100 0.60 You have a mixture of Designer Whey and Pure Whey Protein Stack that costs a total of$14 and supplies exactly 540 grams of protein. How many grams of carbohydrates does it supply?

To determine

To calculate: The amount of carbohydrates in a mixture of Designer Whey and Pure Whey Protein Stack. The supplements, Designer Whey and Pure Whey Protein Stack are combined in such a way that the mixture costs $14 and supplies exactly 540 grams of protein. The following table shows the data on the three protein supplements correspond to a single serving.  Protein (g) Carbohydrates (g) Sodium (mg) Cost ($) Designer Whey (Next) 18 2 80 0.50 Muscle Milk (Cytosport) 32 16 240 1.60 Pure Whey Protein Stack (Champion) 24 3 100 0.60
Explanation

Given Information:

In each serving, Designer Whey contains 18 grams of protein and 2 grams of carbohydrates. In each serving, Pure Whey Protein Stack contains 24 grams of protein and 3 grams of carbohydrates. In each serving, Designer Whey costs $0.50 and Pure Whey Protein Stack costs$0.60. The mixture costs a total of $14 and supplies exactly 540 grams of protein. Formula used: Elimination method: Step 1: Consider the linear equations in two variables. Step 2: The equations are multiplied with suitable non-zero numbers to convert the coefficients to equals of opposite signs. Step 3: The equations are combined to eliminate one variable, and the value of the other variable is calculated. Step 4: Substitute the value of the calculated variable into one of the equations and calculate the value of the other variable. Calculation: Consider the problem, In each serving, Designer Whey contains 18 grams of protein and 2 grams of carbohydrates. In each serving, Pure Whey Protein Stack contains 24 grams of protein and 3 grams of carbohydrates. In each serving, Designer Whey costs$0.50 and Pure Whey Protein Stack costs $0.60. The mixture costs a total of$14 and supplies exactly 540 grams of protein.

Let x be the number of servings of Designer Whey and y be number of servings of Pure Whey Protein Stack.

Construct a table to represent the amount of the resources used,

 Designer Whey (Next) Pure Whey Protein Stack (Champion) Total Protein (g) 18 24 540 Cost ($) 0.50 0.60 14 Here, if x servings of Designer Whey is used and each serving contains 18 g of protein, and if y servings of Pure Whey Protein Stack is used and each serving contains 24 g of protein, then a total of protein used is 18x+24y grams. But the mixture supplies exactly 540 grams of protein. Thus, the equation becomes, 18x+24y=540 Also, if x servings of Designer Whey is used and each serving costs$0.50 and if y servings of Pure Whey Protein Stack is used, and each serving costs $0.60, then the total mixture costs 0.50x+0.60y dollars. But the mixture costs a total of$14.

Thus, the equation becomes,

0.50x+0.60y=14

Thus, the two equations are,

18x+24y=540 …… (1)

0.50x+0.60y=14 …… (2)

Consider the equation,

18x+24y=540

Divide both sides of the equation (1) by 6,

186x+246y=54063x+4y=90

Consider the equation,

0.50x+0.60y=14

Multiply both sides of the equation (2) by 10 to get rid of decimals,

10(0.50x+0.60y)=10(14)10(0.51)x+10(0
