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
