Accepted Solution

A:
let country A produced x million metric tons of corn. let country B produced y million metric tons of corn. let country C produced z million metric tons of corn. According to question x+y+z=649...(i) x=83+y+z...(ii) y=189+z...(iii), Putting (ii) in (i),we get or,83+y+z+y+z=649 or,2y+2z=649-83$$or,\:y+z=\left(\frac{566}{2}\right)=283$$...(iv) Replace y+z in(i), x+283=649 x=649-283=366 replace y in (iv) 189+z=283 z=283-189=94 therefore y=283-94=189 So, country A produced 366 million metric tons of corn. let country B produced 189 million metric tons of corn. let country C produced 94 million metric tons of corn.
