 Question 354203: I am having difficulty setting up this problem. I have tried several different ways but can not get the same answer as the book. Here is the problem. A Merchant blends tea that sells for \$3.00 a pound with tea that sells for \$2.75 a pound to produce 80 lbs of a mixture that sells for \$2.90 a pound. How many pounds of each type of tea does the merchant use in the blend. I thought that if i multiplied \$2.90 by 80 that would give me the price for the total amount of 80 lbs. I used the x variable to represent the unknown lbs. Here is my equation 232(price of total 80 lbs)= \$3.00x + \$2.75x I thought this would work but it didn't. Here are the answers the book has 48 lbs of the \$3.00 tea and 32 lbs of the \$2.75 tea I would greatly appreciate it if you could explain this thank you. Click here to see answer by Earlsdon(6294)
