**Steve**, Saturday, October 6, 2012 at 2:52pmMs. Sue is correct. Since $11 is halfway between $10 and $12, there is an equal amount of each coffee.

algebraically, consider the value of each component, and the total. If there are x kg of Brazilian coffee, then there are 216-x kg of Turkish.

10x + 12(216-x) = 11*216

x = 108

This method will also work if the price ratio were different.
