A nursery is selling one kind of grass mixture for $0.75/lbs while another kind is going for$1.10/lbs. How much of each kind would need to be mixed to produce 50 lbs mixture of seeds that will sell for 0.90/lbs. Thanks. OpenStudy (amistre64):

seed @ .75 = 50(.90 - 1.10)/(.75 - 1.10), i believe OpenStudy (amistre64):

200/7 perhaps at .75 ; 28' 4/7 OpenStudy (amistre64):

we can either move the numbers about or simply determine whats left: + 3/7 and add 21 more to get 50; 21' 3/7 28' 4/7 21' 3/7 ------- 49' 7/7 OpenStudy (anonymous):

You must express what you know in terms of equations. Let $x _{1}$ be the amount of seed 1 in pounds and $x _{2}$ be the amount of seed 2 in pounds. Then the total cost of the mixture will be: $0.75x _{1}+1.10x _{2} = 0.9\left( x_{1} + x_{2} \right)$ And the total weight of the mixture will be: $x_{1} + x_{2} = 50$ Substitute equation 2 in equation 1 to get (remember, this equation is about the cost of the mix): $0.75x _{1}+1.10x _{2} = 0.9*50 = 45$ Solve equation 1 for one of the variables $x_{1} = \frac{45 - 1.10x_{2}}{0.75} = 60 - 1.466^{-} x_{2}$ Substitute this proportion back in equation 2: $60 - 1.466^{-} x_{2} + x_2 = 50$ $0.466^{-} x_{2} = 10$ $x_{2} = \frac{10}{0.466^{-}} = 21.428571428571428571428571428571$ Substitute this value back in equation 2 to find the missing value: $x_{1} + 21.428571428571428571428571428571 = 50$ $x_{1} = 28.571428571428571428571428571429$ OpenStudy (amistre64):

a +b = t ; total the amount needed ax +by = tz ; amounts * prices equals total amount * needed price then eliminate the one your not looking for. a +b = t <-- * -x ax +by = tz -ax -bx = -tx ax +by = tz ------------ b(y-x) = t(z-x) ; and solve for "b" b@y = t(z-x)/(y-x) OpenStudy (amistre64):

seed@.75 = 50 (.90 - 1.10) / (.75 - 1.10) seed@ 1.10 = 50 (.90 - .75) / (1.10 - .75)
