You've been asked to buy 100 squeegies, using 100
dollars to do so. You may buy no more or less than
100 squeegies, and the total price must be exactly
100 dollars. There is no sales tax. Red squeegies
cost $6.00. Yellow squeegies cost $3.00. Blue
squeegies cost $0.10. How many of each must you buy?
