Soybean meal is 16% protein and corn is 9% protein. How many pounds of each should be mixed to get a 350 lb mixture that is 12% protein?

  • Algebra -

    s pounds of soy
    c pounds of corn
    s + c = 350
    or c = 350 - s

    .16 s + .09 c = .12 * 350 = 42
    so
    .16 s + .09(350 - s) = 42
    etc
