Homework Help: algebra

Posted by Loretta on Friday, April 15, 2011 at 1:03am.

While working at The Nut House you are asked to make a mixture of raisins and nuts worth $2.75/lb. You have 12 pounds of raisins worth $1.25/lb. How many pounds of nuts worth $4.00/lb should you add to the raisins to get the right-priced mix?

I have no idea how to solve this. I am terrible at word problems.
