A grocer wants to make a 10pound mixture of cashews and peanuts that he can sell for $3.29 per pound. If cashews cost $5.60 per pound and peanuts cost $2.30 per pound, how many pounds of each must he mix?
Make sure to show your work.
And use the V.E.S.T. formula

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Let 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 \(5.60x+2.30y=3.29(x+y)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wouldn't it just be.. x + y = 10 5.60x + 2.30y = 3.39

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm really not sure about the second equation. I included the (x+y) because the 3.29 is per pound
