    Answer:

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let Kaylee used the amount of green paint in the mixture = x ounces

    and the amount of white paint = y ounces

    Total amount of mixture = 50 ounces

    Equation will be x + y = 50 ——(1)

    Ratio of green paint to the white paint in the mixture = 5 : 3

    ⇒  x : y = 5 : 3

    \frac{x}{y}=\frac{5}{3}

    x = \frac{5}{3}y ———(2)

    Therefore, By solving these two equations by substitution method we can get the amount of green and white paint used in the mixture.
