Answer:x + y = 14 and 300x + 500y = 5200Step-by-step explanation:Let us assume that Robert purchased

x number of cans of shopwhich had300 mg of sodium eachandy number of cans of frozen dinnerswhich contained500 mg of sodium each.If Robert purchased a total of 14 cans which collectively contained 5200 mg of sodium, then we can write two equations using x and y. They arex + y = 14 ……. (1) and300x + 500y = 5200 ……… (2).Therefore, equations (1) and (2) are the required system of equations which can be solved to get the values of x and y.
