Do you have a real life scenario or not? Do you have the total amount and want to find m and s? Let's say you paid for a service monthly, either $4 or $6 and the total was $60. Now you want to figure out how many times you paid $4 and how many times $6.Manually I figured the value could be $60. I want to know how I could use algebra to figure it out though.
Could you share the scenario? I still don't understand what you trying to do. Is it close to my example above? Where does $60 come from?Sorry for the confusion. It is a real life scenario. I figured out manually the $60 amount.
I wanted to know if it was possible to arrive at the $60 amount if I didn't know the number beforehand.
Do you suggest another method to get the $60 answer?
