There's not enough info here, as there must be more to it to solve.
Without further information, there are infinite answers. All we know is that
p = 2n
where p = ounces of pretzels
and n = ounces of nuts
So, for example, there could be:
4 ounces nuts, 8 ounces pretzels
or 5 oz. nuts and 10 pretzels
or 20 oz nuts and 40 pretzels
see . . . need more info to get another equation.
