Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: Parents pay $595 for primary child and $620 for toddler child every month.Step-by-step explanation:Let x represents the amount paid by the parents for a primary child and y represents the amount paid by the parents for a toddler child every month.According to the question, we have the following system of equations:-[tex]22x+18y=24250..........(1)\\\\30x+15y=27150......................(2)[/tex]Divide 2 on both sides in equation (1) and 15 on both sides on equation (2), we get[tex]11x+9y=12125..................(3)\\\\2x+y=1810\\\Rightarrow y=1810-2x.................(4)[/tex]Substitute the value of y in (3), we get[tex]11x+9(1810-2x)=12125\\\\\Rightarrow\ 11x+16290-18x=12125\\\\\Rightarrow\ 7x=4165\\\\\Rightarrow\ x=595[/tex]Substitute value of x in (4), we get[tex]y=1810-2(595)=620[/tex]Hence, Parents pay $595 for primary child and $620 for toddler child every month.
