this is the problem number 16 in week 4 forum Math 110 American Military University.

there are total 30 problems in which a student has to choose 1 problem and post the solution.

This is a moderated forum. Your posting will not be visible to the rest of the class until I approve it. Occasionally, more than one person will tackle a problem before they can see the work of others. In that case, credit will be given to all posters. Once the solution to a problem has become visible, that problem is off limits and you will need to choose a different problem in order to get credit.

16) The manager of a bulk foods establishment sells a trail mix for $8 per

pound and premium cashews for $15 per pound. The manager wishes to

make a 35-pound trail mix-cashew mixture that will sell for $14 per

pound. How many pounds of each should be used?
