34. The cost of x purchasing grams of Salad A, y grams of Salad B and z grams of Salad C will be _____.

Cost of Salad A =  $ 200  x                   x gm                    x  100¢                = 25x ¢
                             100 gm                                                 P 1,000

Cost of Salad B =     $ 30  x                   y gm                    x  100¢                = 30y ¢
                             100 gm                                                 P 1,000


Cost of Salad C =     $ 35  x                   z gm                    x  100¢                = 35z ¢
                             100 gm                                                 P 1,000

therefore, the total cost is (25x + 30y + 35z) cents * Ans.

35. Which of the following diets would supply the most grams of vitamins?

c. Salad A + 50g Salad B + (300 g) Salad C

= 0.40 (200) + 0.30 (100) + 0.50 (200) ----> 80 + 30 + 100 ----> 210 gms * Ans.

36. All of the following diets would supply at least 85 grams of carbohydrates. Which of the diets costs the least?

b. $ 25 (3) + $ 30 (1) + $ 35 (2)
    $ 75 + $ 30 + $ 70 = $ 175 * Ans.
