1.Write an equation to represent the problem.

2.How much Kentucky Blue Grass does the nursery use in 5 pounds of the mixture?

3.How much Tall Fescue does the nursery use in 5 pounds of the mixture?

I k represents the amount of Blue Grass, then 5-k must be the amount of T.F. used

so....

575k + 450(5-k) = 525(5)

It solves quite nicely

Thank you
