Problem 6.2.50

Five hundred gallons of 89-octane gasoline is obtained by mixing 87-octane gasoline with 92-octane gasoline. (a) Write a system of equations in which one equation represents the amount of final mixture required and the other represents the amounts of 87- and 92-octane gasolines in the final mixture. Let and represent the numbers of gallons of 87-octane and 92-octane gasolines, respectively. (b) Use a graphing utility to graph the two equations in part (a) in the same viewing window. As the amount of 87-octane gasoline increases, how does the amount of 92-octane gasoline change? (c) How much of each type of gasoline is required to obtain the 500 gallons of 89-octane gasoline?
