Taylor works after school in a health food store, where one of the more challenging tasks is to add cranberry juice to apple juice to make a cranapple drink. A liter of apple juice costs 0.80 and a liter of cranberry juice costs1.25. The mixture is to be sold for exactly the cost of the ingredients, at $1.09 per liter. How many liters of each juice should Taylor use to make 20 liters of the cranapple mixture?

80/l * x + 125/l * ( 20-x) = 109 (20)

80x + 2500- 125x = 2180

- 45x = -320

x = apple juice liters = 7.11 cranberry = 12.89 liters

Best Answer

80/l * x + 125/l * ( 20-x) = 109 (20)

80x + 2500- 125x = 2180

- 45x = -320

x = apple juice liters = 7.11 cranberry = 12.89 liters
