A food store makes a 11–pound mixture of peanuts, almonds, and raisins. The cost of peanuts is $1.50 per pound, almonds cost $3.00 per pound, and raisins cost $1.50 per pound. The mixture calls for twice as many peanuts as almonds. The total cost of the mixture is $21.00. How much of each ingredient did the store use?
