Answer:The number of associates = 6

The number of partners = 4

Step-by-step explanation:let the number of associates = x

let the number of partners = y

The law firm assigned a total of 10 lawyers

∴ x + y = 10

∴ y = 10 – x ⇒ (1)

$8000 per day charged for these lawyers, The daily rate charged to the client for each associate is $600 and the daily rate for each partner is $1100.

∴ 600x + 1100 y = 8000 ⇒ (2)

Solve (1) and (2) by substitute from (1) at (2)600 x + 1100 (10 – x) = 8000

solve for x:600 x + 11000 – 1100 x = 8000

-500 x = -3000

x = -3000/-500 = 6

At (1) to find yy = 10 – 6 = 4

So,The number of associates = 6And the number of partners = 4
