Want a study guide too?
An apartment complex, consisting entirely of two-bedroom or three-bedroom apartments, houses 47 college students and no other residents. Exactly 4 people live in each two-bedroom apartment, and exactly 7 people live in each three-bedroom apartment. Each student who lives in a two-bedroom apartment pays $500 in rent per month. Each student who lives in a three-bedroom apartment pays $800 per month. If the total amount being paid by all students in the complex is $34,000 in a month, how many three-bedroom apartments are there in the complex?
