Similar to the last problem.....we have this equation

 

(N)(6)   +  ( 110 - N)(10)   = 820

 

6N + 1100 - 10N  =  820

 

-4N + 1100  = 820           subtract  1100 from both  sides

 

-4N  = -280      divide both sides by  -4

 

N  = 70  =  number of boxes of standards

 

110 - N   = 110  - 70  =  40  = number of boxes of deluxes
