    Ms. Sue is correct. Since $11 is halfway between $10 and $12, there is an equal amount of each coffee.

    algebraically, consider the value of each component, and the total. If there are x kg of Brazilian coffee, then there are 216-x kg of Turkish.

    10x + 12(216-x) = 11*216
    x = 108

    This method will also work if the price ratio were different.
