May you please help me with word problems?

A candy shop manager mixes M&M's worth $2.00 per pound with trail mix worth $1.50 per pound to make 50 pounds of party mix worth $1.80 per pound. How many pounds of each she should use?

Can you please explain how you got the answer and it will be nice if you can show the process. Thank you.
