soybean meal is 18% protein, and cornmeal is 9% protein. How many pounds of each should be mixed together in order to get 360lb mixture that is 17% protein. how many lbs should be cornmeal and how many lbs should be soybean be?

  • math -

    Let S be the soybean amount and C be the cornmeal amount, in pounds.

    S + C = 360 (the total amount)
    0.18 S + 0.09 C = 0.17 * 360 = 61.2
    (total protein amount)
    Solve the two equations in two unknowns.
    I assume you know how to do that.
