Story problem, help me!!!

The manager of a store that specializes in selling tea decides to experiment with a new blend. She will make some Earl Grey tea that sells for six dollars per pound with some orange pekoe tea that sells for two dollars per pound to get 800 pounds of the new blend. The selling price of the new blend is to be $3.50 per pound, and there’s to be no difference in revenue from selling the new blend versus selling the other types. How many pounds of the earl gray tea and orange pekoe tea are required?
