    Answer:

    30 ounces

    Step-by-step explanation:

    You first have to write out the two equations:

    5+0.25x=y

    2+0.35x=y

    Then simply equal the equations to each other:

    5+0.25x=2+0.35x

    Subtract the 2 from both sides:

    3+0.25x=0.35x

    Subtract the 0.25x from both sides:

    3=0.10x

    Divide the 0.10 on both sides:

    30=x

    So, 30 ounces is your answer!

    You can check by plugging 30 back into the equations to make sure that they are equal to each other.

    5+0.25(30)=12.5

    2+0.35(30)=12.5
