 Question 842757: Mixture Word problem Mix together M&Ms and trail mix. The M&Ms are \$7.00 per pound. And Trail Mix is \$15.00 per pound. How many of each to get 480 pounds that would cost to be \$8.00 per pound? My 2 equations that I came up with are: x+y=480 .7x+.15y=.8*480 so I did the subsitution method to solve. I solved the first problem as Y=-x+480. then my second equation came out to be .7x+.15y=384 Then I subsituted the first equation into the second equation and got .7x +.15(-x+480)=384... I distributed the .15 to the -x and 480. The new equation came to be... .7x-.15x+72=384. then I combined the x's. subtracted 72 from both sides and got: .55x=312 Then divided .55 to get x by it self, there for x=567.27 I know from here i would put the x= value into the first problem of x+y=480 But I know x is wrong... did i set it up wrong?
