Billy was selling fruit-sold apples for $3, plums for $4 each. He made a total of $36.

Write the equation describing the possible sales of apples and plums.   

List the y and x intercepts for the equation.  List 4 combinations of fruit sold by Billy.

Please note that your problem can be modeled by the subsequent equation:

3 A+ 4P = 36

where A is the cost of each apple and P is the cost of each plum.

Now I divide both sides of thatequation by 36, and I get:

A/12  + P/9 = 1

so the A-intercept is 12, and the P-intercept is 9
