1/100*x + 2/100*y + 3/100*z = (x+y+z)*1.5/100

get rid of 100

x + 2y + 3z = 1.5(x+y+z)

then multiply 2

2x + 4y + 6z = 3x + 3y + 3z

solve for x

x = y + 3z

A

hmm A?

lets say 1x+2y+3z=3/2(x+y+z)

bring all the X to one side...you get x=y+3z

1% of x has .01x of fat, 2% has .02y of fat.. and .03 of fat..
total fat = .015..

.01x + .02y + .03z = .015
or.. x = 1.5-(2y+3z)

so.. x in terms of y and z is 2y + 3z.. constant can be ignored
