How many pounds of cornmeal should be in the mixture?

How many pounds of the soybean meal should be in the mixture?

  • algebra -

    let the amount of soybean be x lb
    let the amount of cornmeal be 360-x lbs

    so .18x + .09(360-x) = .11(360)

    I would multiply the equation by 100, then its easy
