 Question 329828: Solution A is 10% sugar while Solution B is 30% sugar.A chemist wants to have a 60-liter mixture of solutions A and B with 18% sugar.How many liters of each solution should he use?Answer by stanbon(57339)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Solution A is 10% sugar while Solution B is 30% sugar.A chemist wants to have a 60-liter mixture of solutions A and B with 18% sugar.How many liters of each solution should he use? ------------------------ Equation: sugar + sugar = sugar 0.10x + 0.30(60-x) = 0.18*60 --- Multiply thru by 100 to get: 10x + 30*60 - 30x = 18*60 -20x = -12*60 x = 36 liters (amt. of 10% solution needed in the mixture) --- 60-x = 24 liters (amt of 0.30% solution needed in the mixture) ==================== Cheers, Stan H.
