Three bags of jelly beans contain 26, 28, and 30 beans. The ratios of yellow beans to all beans in each of these bags are 50\%, 25\%, and 20\%, respectively. All three bags of candy are dumped into one bowl. To the nearest percent, what is the percentage of yellow jelly beans in the bowl?

26 * .5 = 13

28 * .25 = 7

30 * .2 = 6

6 + 13 + 7 = 26.

26 total yellow jelly beans. 

26 + 28 + 30 = 84 total jelly beans. 

26/84 = 0.30952380952

Which is about 31%

 

I hope this helped. :))
