Walnuts cost $10 per pound and peanuts cost $5 per pound. How many pounds of peanuts would be needed for a 40 pound mixture that sells for $7.75 per pound?
How would I set this up in a system of equations again??

This is what I think it is-
10x+5y=7.75
x+y=7.75

- anonymous

x + y = 40
I think..

Okay I wasn't so sure if it was that or x+y=40. Thx I"ll try it out to see if I get an answer from my choices :)

Their mixture is 40:
So:
x + y = 40
10x + 5y = 7.75
It is better to divide second equation by 5 first:
2x + y = 1.55
Now you have to just subtract them..
