 Question 83564: The question is: Almonds worth \$8.75/lb mixed with peanuts worth 4.75/lb take how many pounds of each to make an 80lb mixture worth \$6.50/lb? I have tried solving by addition with 8.75a + 4.75p = 80(6.50) or \$520 by mutiplying a+b=80 by -4.75 to eliminate the peanuts.The result I get is 4.75a=\$520-\$380 or \$140. \$140/4.75 is 29.47 for almonds which is wrong. I have the correct answer and my calculation doesn't match the answer and I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I need to know the right way to get to 45lbs of almonds and 35 lbs of peanuts.
