1.
Amanda sells fresh seafood at a market stall, and every day she has a kg of fish, b kg of
crabs and c kg of prawns to sell. She sells fish at $8 per kg, crabs at $12 per kg and
prawns at $10 per kg. However, the cost price of the seafood is different each day, and
the table below shows the cost price of each of the seafood for 3 particular days, and
the profit that Amanda made for each day:

Amanda sold all her seafood on Day 1 and 2, but was left with 5 kg of fish and 15 kg of
crabs unsold on Day 3. Ignoring the loss incurred by the leftover stock, calculate the
values of a, b and c respectively.
