A natural food store makes its own brand of trail mix out of dried apples, raisins, and peanuts. One pound of the mixture costs $3.18. It contains twice as much peanuts by weight of apples. One pound of dried apples costs $4.48, a pound of raisins $2.40, and a pound of peanuts $3.44. How many ounces of each ingredient are contained in 1 pound of the trail mix?

P=2A

4.48A+2.40R+3.44P = 3.18

A+R+P=1

Solve for A, R and P (must each be >0).
