# Project #17256 - project 1 parts 1 & 2

### Part I: Data Collection

To maintain health, people need to consume a recommended daily amount of many different vitamins and minerals, as established by government health agencies. To achieve those levels, people have their choice of many types of food to consume. For the sake of simplicity, assume that you are a poor college student who can only afford two items: broccoli and corn. Also assume that the only nutrients you absolutely need to maintain proper health are calcium and iron.

Gather from credible sources the following data:

• The amount of calcium and iron (in milligrams) found in one 10 oz package of broccoli
• The amount of calcium and iron (in milligrams) found in a ½ cup of frozen corn
• The recommended daily values (in milligrams) of calcium and iron

### Part II: Building the Meal

After collecting the data, it should be clear that one 10 oz package of broccoli and one ½ cup of frozen corn will not allow a person to achieve the minimum levels of calcium and iron for one day. To that end, you need to determine how much of each food item you need in order reach those levels. Construct and solve a linear system of two equations that would make that determination.
