    well.. i think something is wrong !! if the 10 pounds are all of the cheaper chocolate the total price would be $25 !! so it can not be only $16

    2.50x + 3.25(10 - x) = 16 2.50(10) + 3.25x = 16 2.50x + 3.25(10) = 16 2.50(x) + 3.25(16) = 10x

    2.50x + 3.25(10 - x) = 16 represents the situation it does not make sense but it represent the situation though.. so it is the answer
