The farmer's market has a total of 98 tents. the ratio of food tents to retail tents is 9:5.a. Write a system of linear equations that represent this situation.b. How many food tents are at the market?c. How many retail tents are at the market?
F+r=98 5f=9r F is food tents, r is retail tents. Plug in f=9/5r to the top to get 14/5r=98. Then 2/5r=14. So r=35 and f=9/5*35=63.
