Yolanda's Coffee Shop makes a blend that is a mixture of two types of coffee. Type A coffee costs Yolanda $5.20 per pound, and type B coffee costs $4.05 perpound. This month, Yolanda made 130 pounds of the blend, for a total cost of $586.30. How many pounds of type B coffee did she use?

B = pounds of B  

A = pounds of A    which equals   130 - B

 

5.20 (130-B)    +   (B) 4.05    =   (586.3)      solve for B
