# Candies

The price for 1 kg of more expensive candies is 125 CZK.
The price for 1 kg of cheaper candy is 100 CZK.
We mix two different mixtures of candy.

A) The first mixture contains 2 kg more expensive and 0.5 kg cheaper candy. Calculate the price for 1 kg of the mixture.
B) The second mixture contains 2 kg of more expensive candy and several kg of cheaper candy. The price per 1 kg of this mix is 110 CZK. Calculate how many kilos of cheaper candy contains the second mixture.

Result

A =  120 Kc/kg
B =  3 kg

#### Solution:

2*125+B*100 = 110 *(2+B)

10B = 30

B = 3

Calculated by our simple equation calculator.
