Solving for 3 variables questions :o
help! Solve the system by elimination 1: x+5y-4z=-10, 2x-y+5z=-9, 2x-10y-5z=0 .
2. Solve the system by substitution: 2x-y+z=-4, z=5, -2x+3y-z=-10.
3. 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?

3 lbs peanuts, 6 lbs almonds, 2 lbs raisins : 8 lbs peanuts, 1 lb almonds, 2 lbs raisins : 6 lbs peanuts, 3 lbs almonds, 2 lbs raisins : 8 lbs peanuts, 2 lbs almonds, 1 lbs raisins So the 3rd one lol? your estimate?

- anonymous

6 lbs of peanuts, 3 lbs of almonds, 2 lbs of raisin. 6+3+2=11
6(1.5)+3(3)+2(1.5)=21 and 6=3*2
I misunderstood the english thats all haha. it was not y=2x, it's x=2y...
