TeaPots n Treasures sells loose Oolong tea for $2.15 per ounce. Donna mixed Oolong tea with shaved almonds that sell for $0.95 per ounce to create the Market Street Oolong blend that sells for $1.85 per ounce. One week, she made 300 oz of Market Street Oolong. How much tea and how much shaved almonds did Donna use?
If there were x oz of almonds, then the rest (300-x) was tea.
0.95x + 2.15(300-x) = 1.85(300)
