The problem

Whenever I open a can of mixed nuts I think about algebra mixture problems and wonder what were the commodity prices of various types of nuts when the package was filled. Will there be any pecans to speak of? How much were almonds at the time? And then there are problems of time, rate, and distance. Thank goodness they don't come to mind when the new can of nuts is opened.
