Question 21993: It would be nice if someone could show me how to solve this mixture problem. Thanks in advance.
A 15 liter bucket of soda contains a mixture with a concentration of 50% corn syrup. How much of this mixture x must be withdrawn and replaced by 100% corn syrup to bring the mixture up to a concentration of 60% corn syrup?
x=________liters Answer by Paul(988) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! 100x+50(15-x)=60(15)
50x=150 (divide both sides 50)
Hence for 100% it should bee 3L and for 50% it should be 12L
