 Question 307362: I am REALLY struggling with this one. You mix your own feed for the puppies. The feed mix consists of ground meat and ground grains. You mix a total of 100 pounds at a time. The ground meat is 45% protein and the ground grains is 18% protein, find the amount of ground meat and ground grains required for a 100 pound feed mix at the optimum protein level of 28%. Solve this system using the Elimination Method. Round solutions to nearest whole number. The system of equations that I thought should be used is: m + g = 100 and 0.45m + 0.18g = 0.28 but I cannot come up with a sensible solution. Please help!
