Rate/Pound \$126 ; \$135 ; Let:X ; \$153
Quantity 1K + 1K + 2K = 4K

Total Cost= 126*K+135*K+X*2K = 153*4K => X=175.5

Let F= cost/pound of 3rd fuel type
Let x= amount of each fuel in the mixture
126x+135x+F*2x=153*4x=612x
612x-126x-135x=F*2x
351x=F*2x
175.5=F
Ans=C

B. \$170
C. \$175.50
D. \$180
E. \$205

Letting n = the price per pound of the third variety of fuel, we can create the following equation:

(126x + 135x + n(2x)) / (4x) = 153

261x + 2nx = 612x

261 + 2n = 612

2n = 351

n = 175.5
