**Monica**, Monday, June 24, 2013 at 4:57pmI would love to try that, but I have no idea where to begin. I don't have class until tomorrow night, so I cannot ask my instructor. I am not trying to be selfish with the help I've received from this site. I am grateful and I genuinely need help.

**Ms. Sue**, Monday, June 24, 2013 at 5:10pmThe best way to learn is to try to do these math problems. We all learn by trial and error and failing sometimes.

You know that you'll need more than half the mixture must be walnuts. There will probably be around 25 or so pounds of walnuts.

**Kuai**, Monday, June 24, 2013 at 5:32pmLet walnut w and pecan p

p = 40-w

10w + 18(40-w) = 40(15)

10w + 720 -18w = 600

-8w + 720 = 600

Solve for w
