Let x be the pounds of cashews and y be the pounds of peanuts. Then \(x + y = 10\), since there are 10 pounds total. 5.60x is the amount for cashews and 2.30y is the amount for peanuts. I THINK 3.29(x + y) is the mixture. So the equation is \(5.60x+2.30y=3.29(x+y)\)

and from there you can use the method of your choice to solve the system

wouldn't it just be.. x + y = 10 5.60x + 2.30y = 3.39

oops....3.29

I'm really not sure about the second equation. I included the (x+y) because the 3.29 is per pound

  • texaschic101
