Translate to a system of equations. DO NOT SOLVE.
A nontoxic scouring powder is made up of 4 parts baking soda and 1 part vinegar. How much of each ingredient is needed for a 16oz mixture?
What are the two equations? For most problems, I can easily find the info for the two equations, but this time, I just don't see the info for equations?
Thanks!

4/5 baking soda and 1/5 vinegar
4/5*16 =

or
b + v = 16
b = 4 v
