I'D REALLY APPRECIATE THE HELP!Answer by amoresroy(333)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!In a chemistry class, 5 liters of a 4% silver iodide solution must be mixed with a 10% solution to get a 6% solution. How many liters of the 10% solution are needed? Let x = number of liters of 10% solution .04*5 + .10x = .06(5+x) 0.2 + .10x = 0.3 + .06x .04x = 0.1 x = 2.5
