HELP PLEASE, can you show steps to, WILL SEND $$$$$!!!!

A coffee company purchases groups of coffee beans and then divides each group of coffee beans into premium beans, regular beans, and unusable beans. The company needs at least 280 tons of premium beans and 200 tons of regular beans. The company may purchase any amount of coffee beans from two suppliers. A group of beans from Supplier A is 20% premium, 50% regular, 30% unusable, and costs $125 per ton. A group of beans from Supplier B is 40% premium, 20% regular, 40% unusable, and costs $200 per ton. How many tons should the company purchase from each supplier to meet its needs at minimum cost?
