Answer:

In order to solve this problem, you should use a system of equations. To do this, you will create two equations: one for the money spent and one for the number of items. $$ x + y = 22 $$ $$ 0.32x + 0.75y = 10.48 $$ You should solve the first equation for x by subtracting y from each side, giving you $$ x = 22 - y $$ You should then plug this equation into the second equation, giving you $$ 0.32(22-y) + 0.75y = 10.48 $$ You can simplify the equation by distributing 0.32 across the parenthesis, giving you $$ 7.04 - 0.32y + 0.75y = 10.48 $$. You can then combine like terms to get $$ 0.43y +7.04 =10.48 $$. In order to get the y term by itself, you should subtract 7.04 from both sides of the equation, resulting in $$ 0.43y = 3.44 $$. To finish solving for y, you need to divide both sides by 0.43, giving you $$ y = 8 $$, meaning that Joanie bought 8 markers. To solve for the number of erasers that Joanie bought, plug 8 in for the y in the first equation $$ x + 8 = 22 $$. To solve for x, subtract 8 from both sides of the equation, giving you $$ x = 14 $$, meaning that Joanie purchased 8 markers and 14 erasers.
