If you have 100 kg of brass and you will have to prepare 100 utensils,each glass of 250grams,each mug of 1 kil

on November 30th, -0001 let
glass = x
mug = y
bucket = z

equation 1
x + y + z = 100

equation 2
0.25x + y + 5z = 100

solve these two equation simultaneously.

on November 30th, -0001 Set up equations with:

G = glass
M= mug
B = bucket

1. 100 = G + M + B (making sure you have 100 utensils)
2. 100 = .25G + M + 5B (250g = .25kg etc., making sure you use 100 kg of brass)

on November 30th, -0001 Adam has the equations to get going on this thing. There are several possible answers, as one could simply make 100 mugs and use all the brass. 16 glasses, 81 mugs, and 3 buckets is another possibility. This is a fun one to play with, keeping in mind we want integer values for our quantities, as half a bucket doesn’t hold much water.
