PLZ PLZ, SOMEONE HELP ME ON THIS PROBLEM!!! A supermarket is selling two types of candy, orange slices and strawberry leaves. The orange slices cost 1.29 per pound and the leaves cost 1.79 per pound. How many pounds of each should be mixed to get a 12-pound mixture that sells for 17.48?

    Let: s=pounds of orange slices l=pounds of leaves You know: 12=s+l and 1.29s+1.79l=17.48 Can you solve this?
