6.2 per pound of Koan 5.8 per pound of Amaretto She wants to mix the two and sell for 6.1. Let a denote the pounds of Amaretto and k the pounds of Koan that are used: \[6.1(a+k)=5.8a+6.2k\]She uses 18 lbs of Amaretto (a=18) \[6.1(18+k)=5.8(18)+6.2k\]Now you solve for k to find out how many lbs of koan coffee she needs to use to match the money.
