All 28 members in Crestview High School's Ski Club went on a one day ski trip. Members can rent skis for $16 per day or snowboards for $19 per day. The

club paid a total of $478 for rental equipment. How many members rented skis and how many rented snowboards?
How do you translate this into equations?


let  member rented skis= x
 member rented snowboard=28-x
 As per problem 16*x+(28-x)19=478
                     ⇒ 3x=532-478=54
                     ⇒  x=18
members rented ski is 18
 and members rented snowboard is 28-18=10
