let a = purity of sauce a = 0.3 let b = purity of sauce b = 0.8 x = number of spoonfuls of a y = number of spoonfuls of b x0.3 * y0.8 = 0.45 Total number of spoonfuls = 4 x+y=4 x=4y Sub 4y(0.3) * y0.8 = 0.45 Solve for y Sub to solve for x

Woops the equation i think is supposed to be x0.3 + y0.8 = 0.45 4y(0.3) + y0.8 = 0.45
