>Let x represent the mass of peanuts
>Mass of pecans:30x
>The Value of peauts:5x
>Value of pecans:20(30x)
Equation: 5x + 20 (30x)= 10(30)
*Please note a number before the bracket means tp multiply*
5x + 600 x  20 = 300
>move + 600 to the other side of the equal sign, it becomes a negative  600.
> x20 just make it a 20x
5x  20x = 300  600
15x = 300
>So negative 15 equals negative 300
>Next divide 15x by 15 and 300 by 15
15x = 300
 
15 15
x = 20 Kg (the mass of peanuts)
> Mass of pecans: 30  x whitch is 30  20 = 10kg
