A grocer wants to make a 10-pound 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

what is the vest formula?

I don't even know the vest formula

- slayer8001

variable equation solve it and test it

- anonymous

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 \(5.60x+2.30y=3.29(x+y)\)

- anonymous

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

- texaschic101

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

- texaschic101

oops....3.29

- anonymous

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

- texaschic101

hmmm...your right, it is per pound....not too sure about this one
