Their archrival, Jojo’s Java, sent a spy to steal their ratio for blending beans. The spy returned with a torn part of an old receipt that showed only the total number of pounds and the total cost,

First, define variables you can use to write equations.

Let = the number of pounds of Colombian coffee beans

Let

*= the number of pounds of Mocha Java coffee beans*

Next, set up an equation to represent the information about cost.

Now set up a second equation to show the total number of pounds.

Finally, solve your system of equations.
