# Bronze, tin and copper

Bronze is an alloy of tin and copper. An alloy of 10% tin and 90% copper is Gunmetal. If it contains 20% tin and 80% copper, it is bell metal. How many tons of molten bell metal and how many tons of copper is needed to make 100 tons of Gunmetal?

Correct result:

z =  50 t
c =  50 t
