I'm pretty sure there's enough information to solve this problem, I just can't figure it out. I either get fractions or negative numbers as my answer. Any help is greatly appreciated!! :-)

    Q+D+N=30
    .25Q+.10D +.05N=5.50
    D=2N

    Yes, three equations, three unknowns, enought information.
