    Answer:

    4r + 2s = 18

    Step-by-step explanation:

    creating an equation

    since raspberries are $4 a carton and strawberries are $2 a carton.

    we can use variable to represent both strawberries and raspberries

    strawberries = s

    raspberries = r

    since the total of both the items are $18 . we can create this formula:

    4r + 2s = 18

    this means 4 multiplied by the number of cartons of raspberries + 2 * the number of cartons of strawberries = $18
