## Homework Statement

A florist offers three sizes of flower arrangements containing roses, daisies,

and chrysanthemums.

Each small arrangement contains one rose, three daisies, and three chrysanthemums.

Each medium arrangement contains two roses, four daisies, and six chrysanthemums.

Each large arrangement contains four roses, eight daisies, and six chrysanthemums.

One day, the florist noted that she used a total of 24 roses, 50 daisies, and 48 chrysanthemums in filling orders for these three types of arrangements.

How many arrangements of each type did she make?

I'm sort of confused on how to set these equations up... like what do they = to?

Let x = roses, y = daises, z = chrysanthemums

Small arrangement: 1x + 3y + 3z = ??

Medium arrangement: 2x + 4y + 6z = ??

Large arrangement: 4x + 8y + 6z = ??

Restriction: 24x + 50y + 48z = ??

Im not sure what these equal to. If I could figure that out maybe I could set a matrice and solve..
