Let the unknown in Coffee X be x and unknown in Coffee Y is y

In Coffee X the ratio of P/V is 4x/x
In Coffee y the ratio is P/V is y/5y

Total quantity of Coffee P is 24 pounds
4x + y = 24

Total quantity of coffee V is 25 pounds
x + 5y = 25

Now solving 2 equations will give

x = 5, y = 4

P in coffee X is 4x = 20 pounds
