a snack is made from nuts and granola. in a 28 oz container, there is 1 more ounce of granola than twice the ounces of nuts. how many ounces of each are in the snack?

number ounces granola = g

number ounces nuts = n

===============

g + n = 28

g = 2n + 1

solve for g and n.

n=6.75

sorry ..6.75 is wrong

n=9

g=19

sorry ..6.75 is wrong

n=9

g=19
