**drwls**, Sunday, July 19, 2009 at 1:23amLet the number of pounds of corn meal be x and the number of pounds of soybean meal be y.

x + y = 240, for obvious reasons.

(0.06 x + 0.12 y)/240 = 0.1 (the fracttion that is protein)

Solve those two equations for x and y, using algdebra.

The sccond equation can be rewritten as

0.06x + 0.12y = 24, or

x + 2y = 400

Take it from there
