Hi

91x + 28y = 703

7(13x + 4y) = 703

13x + 4y = 703/7 =/= an integer.

We are adding two multiples if 7, so the resultant also must be a multiple of 7, but 703 is not divisible by 7.

A. 0

D. 3
E. 4

If we let y = the number of yak rides and z = the number of zebra rides, we can create the following equation:

91y + 28z = 703

Factoring out a 7, we have:

7(13y + 4z) = 703

13y + 4z = 703/7

Since 13y + 4z MUST be an integer, and since 703/7 IS NOT an integer, there is no way that a visitor can ride a zebra and/or yak with exactly 703 dollars.

• The cost to ride a zebra = $$$28$$ • Total amount we can spend =$$$703$$
• Therefore we can write the equation as -
• $$91y + 28z = 703$$
• Where y is the number of times one rides a yak
• and z is the number of times one rides a zebra.

• $$28z$$ is always even, and $$91y$$ + Even = Odd, therefore, we can conclude that y will be odd.

• Therefore, $$y$$ can take the value $$1,3,5$$ and $$7$$

• If we plug in these values in the equation $$91y + 28z = 703$$ we will find that none of the above 4 values gives us an integer value of z.

• Hence there are $$0$$ ways.

Correct Answer is Option A
