The Nutty Professor sells cashews for $6.75 per pound and Brazil nuts for $5.00 per pound. How much of each type should be used to make a 50-lb mixture that sells for $5.70 per pound?

c = lbs of cashews

b = lbs of brazil nuts

Are these the right equations?

b + c = 50

6.75b + 5c = 5.70

Thanks,
