# How many of each type folders I purchased?

In summary, the conversation involves two different problems. The first problem involves guessing two numbers that add up to 9 and have a specific difference between them. The second problem involves figuring out the number of folders with and without pockets, given the total number and cost of the folders. The speaker is having difficulty with both problems and does not have a strong background in the material. They also seem to have used an online translator, causing confusion with the wording of the first problem.

## Homework Statement

I have no idea how to do it,if some one can help with this two i will give him e-bear :P

Guess what I thought two numbers. If the rest, I get 9. And twice as wide minus three times the smaller is 12.

The number is large:
the number is small:

ANd this is the 2nd one

I paid € 25.50 for 24 folders, with one pocket to 1.20 € each, and no other pocket to 0.90 € each. How many of each type folders I purchased?

Purchased

folders with pockets and

Folder without pocket.

I cannot make sense of what you're asking. I presume English isn't your first language, no problem, but I'm wondering if you used an online translator.

This: "...If the rest, I get 9. And twice as wide..." is nonsense.

I'm going to guess that the problem is this:

Guess these two numbers:
If I add them, I get 9.
Twice the larger one minus three times the smaller one is 12.

You're going to end up with two formulae, each one having two variables. Can you write down those formulae? (hint: see next question)

2]
The ones with the pockets we'll call P, the ones without pockets we'll call N.

We know that P+N=24, that's the total number of folders.
And we know that 1.2P + .9N = 25.50 : the total cost of the folders.
You're got two formulae now, each with two variables. You want to solve for at least one of them. Does this look familiar?

What is your education background? What grade is this? Have you studied similar problems in the textbook?

## 1. How do I determine the total number of folders I purchased?

The total number of folders can be determined by adding up the number of each type of folder you purchased.

## 2. What is the difference between the types of folders I purchased?

The difference between the types of folders may vary depending on the specific characteristics of each type. Some common differences may include size, color, material, or purpose.

## 3. Can I get a breakdown of how many of each type of folder I purchased?

Yes, you can get a breakdown by counting the number of each type of folder you have.

## 4. Is there a way to see a visual representation of the number of each type of folder I purchased?

Yes, you can create a bar graph or pie chart to visually represent the number of each type of folder you purchased.

## 5. How can I keep track of the number of each type of folder I have purchased in the future?

You can keep track by labeling or organizing your folders, or by maintaining a list of the number of each type of folder you purchase.
