  • Algebra -

    let x be the number of units of lumber.
    let 3x be the number of units of plywood (because it turns three times as many units of plywood as lumber)

    Multiply the variables by the profits and set it equal to the total profit

    3x*40+x*25=15080
    120x+25x=15080
    145x=15080

    x=104

    To find how much of each unit:
    104 lumber (because x is the number of lumber)
    3*104 plywood (because 3x is the number of plywood) = 312
