S=number of bags of sticky bears, then

400-S=number of bags of chocolate bombs.

From total cost = $500, we get

1.5S+1.0(400-S)=500

Solve for S

0.5S = 500-400

S=200

Quick way:

each bag of sticky bears costs 1.50

each bag of chocolate costs 1.00

Average cost = $500/400=1.25

which is smack in between 1.00 and 1.50.

So equal number of bags of each, namely 200.
