now, L = A-16

In 6 years, (L+6) + (A+6) = 42

so, substitute:

(A-16)+6 + A+6 = 42

2A = 46

A = 23

So, Andy is 23, Lisa is 7

In 6 years, they will be 29 and 13, which add to 42

A candy company packages mixed candies. How much white chocolate selling at $2.75 a pound must be added to 4 pounds of dark chocolate selling at $3.95 a pound to produce a mixture selling for $3.30 a pound?

just add up the cost of each kind. The cost must equal the total.

If there are x pounds of white chocolate needed, then the cost obeys

2.75x + 3.95*4 = 3.30(x+4)

x = 52/11 = 4.73 lbs

Odd answer. Is there a typo somewhere?
