**drwls**, Sunday, November 16, 2008 at 1:25pmOne equation would obviousy be

p + c = 20

The other equation would be based upon the total cost. 20 lb at 2.75/per lb should cost $55.

The same amount of money must equal the costs of the two ingredients, added together.

2 p + 5 c = 55.

Solve those two equations for the answer

Since 2p + 2c = 40,

3 c = 15

c = 5

p = 15
