How pounds of cornmeal do you need and how many pounds of soybean do you need?

• algebra -

360 lb with 14% protein is 50.4 lb protein.

Solve these two simultaneous equations for the number of lb of soybean meal (S)and corn meal (C):

S + C = 360
0.18S + 0.09C = 50.4

One way to solve would be to substitute 360-C for S in the second equation.; then solve for C
