m=number of macadamia nuts

t =total

25 +m=t

6.25(25)=156.25

9.50(m)= 9.50 dollars

8.00(t)= 8.00t dollars

156.25 + 9.50=8(25+m)

156.25+9.50m= 200+8m

-8m=43.75

___ ____

Where Did I go wrong? Someone can I please see some steps?

our cost is then:

25[6.25]+M[9.50]=[25+M][8.00] clear brackets

156.25 + 9.5M=200 +8M

1.5M=43.75

M=29.2 lbs

Please solve the equations in the method you are being taught.

I always use the method I employed, as I find it the easiest method for me
