The coffee counter charges $9.00 per pound for Kenyan French Roast coffee and $8.00 per pound for Sumatran coffee. How much of each type should be used to make a 20-lb blend that sells for $8.40 per pound?

Answer: Kenyan-8 lb; Sumatran-12 lb.

Can someone help me with how they arrived at this answer? Thank you
