I am thinking on the lines of quantity for week 2 x unit price for week 2 = 12 will yield a quadratic equation to solve.

But, I am confused with the second half of the problem. Does the 120 g less mean that she will get grade A coffee less that grade A for previous week or less that grade B this week?

Thanks for your help.
