here are my thoughts...

10[a/(a+b) + 2b/(a+b)] = c just factored out the 10

(a+2b) / (a+b) = c/10 divided both sides by 10... and added numerators b/c they have same denominator

think of it kind of like a ratio... (a + 2b) = c and (a+b) = 10

what are all the possibilities where a+b = 10 and a<b
(4,6)
(3,7)
(2,8)
(1,9)

plug these into a + 2b to find the value of c.. it is 18.

There may be an easier way with out plugging in, but this seems to work.
