sure. in english or equation? or both?
equation so I can see how it is solved
you want to end up with 14% of 320=44.8 pounds of protein. 16% will come from soybeans so if we call x the amount of soybeans you will get .16 x
the rest will come from cornmeal and since you will have 320 pounds total if you have 0 amount of soybeans you will have 320 - x amount of cornmeal, 8 % of which is
so you get the equation
now we solve for x:
and of course that makes the amount of cornmeal 80
so it would be 44.8 ponds of soybean and 19.2 pounds of cornmeal is that right?
solving for x gives x = 240
240 pounds of soybeans and therefore 80 pounds of cornmeal
