The Micky Mac apple plantation has a very large orchard of apple trees. They have Macintosh apple trees, which yield an average of acres of Macintosh apple trees and

*acres of Jonathan apple trees.*

Last year, the Micky Mac plantation yielded a total of

pounds of apples. Write an equation that relates andto the total yield.How many pounds of Macintosh apples can be produced in

acres?

How many pounds of Jonathan apples can be produced inacres?

How does this relate tolbs in the problem? Macintosh apples sell for $

per metric ton and Jonathan apples sell for $ per metric ton. If the plantation produces apples worth $ then write an equation relating and. Note: One metric ton equals approximatelypounds. If an orchard of Macintosh apples yields

lbs of apples an acre, how many tons is it?

If an orchard of Jonathan apples yieldslbs of apples an acre, how many tons is it?
