Soybean meal is 12% protein; Cornmeal is 6% protein. How many pounds of each should be mixed together in order to get 240lb mixture that is 8% protein?

  • algebra - ,

    s = pounds soy
    c = pounds corn

    s+c = 240 so c = (240-s)

    .12 s + .06 c = .08 (240)

    so
    .12 s + .06(240-s) = .08 (240)
