he will have 40 minutes for each stuffed chicken pepper

Step-by-step explanation:

First we have to make two equations one to represent the relationship between the stuffed chicken pepper and the pita breads and another in relation to them over time

x = stuffed chicken pepper

x = 2y

3 * x + y * 6 = 4

we replace in the second equation the x by 2y

3 * x + y * 6 = 4

3 * (2y) + y * 6 = 4

we solve and find the value of y

3 * (2y) + y * 6 = 4

6y + 6y = 4

12y = 4

y = 4/12

y = 1/3

to know the value of x we ​​go to the first equation and replace y with 1/3

x = 2y

x = 2(1/3)

x = 2/3h

2/3 of an hour equals 40 minutes

2/3h = 60*2/3 m

2/3h = 40m
