comment How do I combine multiple sets of ratios in order to meet an overall “target” ratio? (word problem supplied to illustrate)
Thank you both to @Robert and @LuboŇ°. I gave LuboŇ° the answer, but both helped me to get what I needed. I took the info and studied matrices. I found a website that calculates matrices. I took the JS script and reverse engineered it for my app. Thanks!

@Qiaochu: This word problem was my poor attempt to abstract what is actually a food calculation. The "Acme Widget" actually represents green veggies in my real problem - something that cannot be skipped. :)
