1.Use the information provided to answer Part A and Part B of the question. Jenifer is making a fruit salad for the family picnic. She follows a recipe that mixes one part pineapple with two parts grapes and three parts cherries. Pineapple costs $2 per pound, grapes cost $3 per pound, and cherries cost $4 per pound. Part A Jenifer has $60 to spend on the fruit salad. Write an algebraic equation which models this situation and solve to find how many pounds of fruit salad she can make.

It seems like the equation may be as simple as 2x+3x+4x=60 but I am not 100% sure since I am doing 5 things at once. @Shadow what do you think?

Part B Jenifer's sister gave her a different recipe which calls for her to mix seven parts pineapple, four parts grapes, and one part cherries. If Jenifer follows her sister's recipe, how many pounds of fruit salad can she make for $60?
