Enrique is making a party mix that contains raisins and nuts. For each ounce of nuts, he uses twice the amount of raisins. How many ounces of nuts and how many ounces of raisins does he need to make 24 ounces of party mix?

x = ounces of nuts

2x ounces of raisins

x + 2x = 24

3x = 24 divid both sides by 3

x = 8

2x = 2(8) = 16 ounces of raisins
