Math Word Problem

posted by .

Tristen mixes nuts that cost $2.00 per pond with nuts that cost $4.00 per pound. He buys triple as much of the $2.00 per pound nut than he buys of the $4.00 per pound nut. If he spent a total of $32.00, how many pounds of the $2.00 per pound nut did he buy?

  • Math Word Problem -

    Let x = the amount of $2/lb nuts
    Let y = the amount of the $4/lb nuts

    He buys triple of x amount so
    3y = x

    This is similar to the first problem you posted. We need to know the value:

    Our second equation is 2x+ 4y = 32

    You can complete this one just like the previous one that you posted.
