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
9x + 8(20-x) = 8.4(20)
9x + 160 - 8x = 168
x = 8
20-x = 20-8 = 12
