Question
Step 1

Given

Price of hazelnut per pound is \$6.20

Price of peanuts per pound is \$4.90.

Here a 34 pound mixture is made and sold at \$5.82 per pound of mixture, we need to find the weught of haenuts and peanuts in the mixture.

Step 2

Let us assume "x" pounds of hazlenuts used in the mixture and " y " pounds of peanuts used in the mixture.

given that total mixture is of 34pounds. So we write the sum of x and y will be 34 as our first equation.

Step 3

Price of one pound of hazlenut is \$6.20. So the price of x pounds of hazlenut will be 6.20 times x.

Price of one pound of peanut is \$4.90. So the price of y pounds of peanuts will be 4.90 times y.

So the total value of the mixture will be price of x pounds of hazlenuts and y pounds of peanuts...
