First we found the least multiples of 30 and 40 which is 120 (30*4 , 40*3), then we subtract it from 360 we end up with 240 which is 40*6
clearly, B is bigger. There is another choice which is (30*8+40*3) but it is not vaild since 8+3 = 11

Mixture

40-36/36-30 = 2/3

Therefore, 2 parts of x and 3 parts of Y
X<Y
A<B

assume a to be x pound of tea and b to be y pounds of tea
total 10 pounds
so a+b=10
and 30a + 40b = 360

a=4, b=6
so. B
