Dried bananas sell for $0.80 per quarter-pound and dried apricots sell for $1.00 per quarter-pound. How many pounds of apricots should be mixed with 11 pounds of bananas to get a mixture that sells for $0.95 per quarter-pound?
x = Ib of apricots
10 + x = total Ilbs of Mixture
0.95[ 11(4) + x(4)] = x(4)1+11(0.80)(4)
0.95[ 44 + 4x]= 4x+35.2
6.6+3.8x (-3.8x)= 4x (-3.8x)
