    look, if we said that the number of pound of 50 cent seed is x and that of 80 seeds is y then 50x+80y=30*75 so for every given value of x we have value of y for example if x=1 then the number of pound of 80 cent seeds is: y=220/8

    25 pounds 75(30)=80x+50(30-x) 2250=80x+1500-50x 750=30x x=25
