A farmer raises wheat and corn on 430 acres Of land. He wants to plant 62 more acres of wheat than corn. How many acres of each should he plant?Please I really need the answer ASAP.
Let x be the number of acres allotted for corn.
Since the land size for wheat is 62 more than x, we may express it number of acres as x+62.
The total lot size for the two plants is 430 acres. Then, our equation would be:
Combine like terms to simplify.
And solve for x.
So, the number of acres for corn is 184.
And, for wheat is:
Hence, the farmer should plant corn on 184 acres of land and 246 acres of wheat.
