\[5x+3.80(30-x)=30\times 4.05\] solve for x

That is just numbers to me. Please take it step by step.

I multiply 30 by x? What is x?

hold on lets start again slowly

Okay.

how are we doing so far?

So, I am to find what x is? So x is less than 30?

you wrote
"Raisins and peanuts are going to be sold in a mixture of 30 pounds..."

that means that the total is 30

Yes, but you wanted me to take x away from 30, so x is less than 30, no?

yes both numbers must be less than 30 because you will have 30 pounds total

Alright.

Okay. I understand what you wrote.

Right.

So I multiply $4.05 until I get $30?

so we multiply to get the total cost. it must be
\[4.05]\times 30 =\$121.50\]

no you multiply the cost per pound times the number of pounds

so we actually know what the total cost is, it is number we can compute

What do they want me to find? The amount (money-wise) it takes for raisins to get to 30 lbs.?

no go back and make sure you remember what the problem is asking for
"how many pounds..."

This is much too complicated for me, I'm sorry.

Like I said, I stopped progressing in math at 6th grade. I'm technically in 11th grade now.

I'm sorry for wasting your time. I'm a dead end when it comes to math :(
