There are “3” Model A printing press & “10” Model B printing press

Step-by-step explanation:

Let there be “a” model A printing press

Let there be “b” model B printing press

There are 13 total, so we can write:

a + b = 13

or,

a = 13 – b

Also, a’s rate is 40 books per day and b’s rate is 70 books per day and total they print 820 books per day, so we can write:

40a + 70b = 820

Now, we substitute 1st equation (2nd form) into this equation and thus solve for b first:

Sincer we know a = 13 – b, we can say:

a = 13 – 10

a = 3

There are “3” Model A printing press & “10” Model B printing press
