**Steve**, Saturday, January 14, 2012 at 12:02amwe have p kg of peppermint and c kg of cinnamon

p+c=50, so c = 50-p

the price of all the peppermint + the price of the cinnamon is the price of all the mixed bags.

1.80p + 2.4(50-p) = 2.16(50)

1.80p + 120 - 2.4p = 108

.60p = 12

p = 20

so,

c = 30
