 Question 232244: how do you create a solution that is 55% x from two solutions, one which is 25% x and another that is 75x?Answer by stanbon(60771)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!how do you create a solution that is 55% x from two solutions, one which is 25% x and another that is 75% x? -------------- (w) + (x-w) = x ---------- Equation: 0.25w + 0.75(x-w) = 0.55x --- Multiply thru by 100 to get: 25w + 75x - 75w = 55x -50w = -25x w = (1/2)x (amt. of 25% solution in the mixture) ------------------ x-w = x-(1/2)x = (1/2)x (amt of 75% solution in the mixture) ================================================================= Cheers, Stan H.
