Variables:
number of bran muffins: x
number of blueberry muffins: y
Cost=>(1) 2x + 4y = 400
Ratio=> (2) y = 2x
Solution:
Equation (1) + Equation (2)
2x + 4y + y = 400 + 2x
=> 5y = 400 => y = 400 / 5 = 80
From equation (2) y = 2x => x = y/2 = 80/2 = 40
Answer: 40 brand muffins and 80 blueberry muffins.
