Since you are mixing 8 oz of nutmeg with 10 oz of cinnamon, there is a total of 18 oz of mixture.

Price per oz of mixture = [1.82(8) + 1.28(10)]/18 = $1.52/oz

asked • 10/11/16In a spice shop nutmeg sells for for $1,82 per ounce and cinnamon sells for $1.28 per ounce. If 8 ounces of nutmeg are mixed with 10 ounces of cinnamon, what should the shop charge the customers per ounce for the mixture?
