I have 600 meters of fabric, 3 products with 3 different yields, 1st product yields 1.5 per meter, 2nd product yields 2 per meter, 3rd yields 3 per meter need to produce 3 equal amounts of product. I want this in an excel spread sheet and cannot solve. This is a real life question no textbook

This question still have no answer summary yet.

you have the total length of fabric, so you neeed the lengths of the products
"1st product yields 1.5 per meter" ___ Lf = 1 / 1.5 = 2 / 3
"2nd product yields 2 per meter" ___ Ls = 1 / 2
"3rd yields 3 per meter" ___ Lt = 1 / 3
let x = "amount of each product"
x(Lf) + x(Ls) + x(Lt) = 600
2/3 x + 1/2 x + 1/3 x = 600
multiplying by 6 (Lowest Common Denominator) ___ 4x + 3x + 2x = 3600 ___ 9x = 3600
dividing by 9 ___ x = 400
