This is the question given:

"Peanuts sell for $5/kg and cashews for $20/kg. Mary wants to sell a mixture of peanuts and cashews for $12/kg. How many kilograms of peanuts and cashews would Mary have to mix in order to make 30kg of the $12/kg mixture?"

This is an algebra question and I need to use "proper format" any suggestions?
