    First of all find the total cost of the mixture this would be
    (80 \times 13.50)+(120 \times 16)=3000$

    He/She wants to gain 16% profit so He/She needs to sell the mixture for
    1.16 \times 3000 = 3480$

    thats the price for all 200kg of the mixture to find the price per kg we need to divide by the weight of the mixture so
    Price=3480 \div 200= 17.40$ per kilo
