a new blend of coffee will cost $3.90 per pound by mixing 2 coffees that sell for $2.75 and $5 per pound. what amounts of each coffee should be blended to obtain the desired mixture?

(the total weight of the desired blend is 100 lbs)

How would I solve this?

The equation would 3.90 = 2.75x + 5x ?

3.90(100) = 2.75x + 5x
