Let x be the number of cars manufactured per day in county A. Let y be that of cars manufactured per day in county B. x+y= 39,612 but x= 5y..... equation (1) So: 5y+y= 39,612 6y= 39,612 y= 6,602 cars Substitute y= 6,602 in equation (1): x= 5(6,602) x= 33,010 So the number manufactured in county A is 33,010 cars and the number manufactured in county B is 6,602 cars.
