Number of small boxes shipped = 10

Number of large boxes shipped = 12

Step-by-step explanation:

Let x be the number of small boxes

and

y be the number of large boxes

According to the first statement, a total of 22 boxes were shipped

Equation 1 will be:

x+y=22

And

According to 2nd statement, Total weight was 1350 and we know the weight of one small box is 45 and large box is 75

So equation 2 will be:

45x+75y=1350

We will use the substitution method for solving the equation

So from equation 1

Putting the value of x in eqn 2

Putting the value of y in eqn 1

So,

Number of small boxes shipped = 10

Number of large boxes shipped = 12 ..
