Thanks, in advance!!Answer by amoresroy(333)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Portobello mushrooms sell for \$6.60/kg and shiitake mushrooms sell for \$11.00/kg. Find the mass of each type of mushroom in 1-kg bags selling for \$8.36. The answers are 600g portobello and 400g shiitake but I got 300g portobello and 520g shiitake. Let P = mass of Portobello mushrooms in Kg 1-P = mass of Shiitake mushrooms in Kg Equation: 6.60P + 11.0(1-P) = 8.36 6.6P + 11.0 - 11P = 8.36 -4.4P = 8.36 - 11.0 P = -2.64/-4.4 P = 0.6 = 600 g 1-P = 1 - .6 = 0.4 = 400 gm So the answers are 600 g Portobello & 400 g Shiitake
