Ellen wishes to mix candy worth $1.80 per pound with candy worth $2.40 per pound to form 48 pounds of a mixture worth $2.00 per pound. How many pounds of the more expensive candy should she use?

she is using 1 pound 2.40$ candy and 2 pound 1.8$ candy to form a mixture of 2$per pound candy

she have to make a mixture of 48 pounds so by upper case= 48/3 = 16 fractions of the mixture of two times cheap candy with one time expensive candy

so by this she is using 36 pounds 1.8$ candy and 13 pounds 2.4$ candy she have to use 1 pound more expensive candy then the original price ratio...................please rate and commentbest of luck
