In blending these fluids, how many liters of the second must be added to 10 liters of the first, if the ammonia in the mixture is to be 16%? ----------------- Equation: active + active = active 0.06*10 + 0.26x = 0.16(10+x) ---- Multiply thru by 100 to get: 6*10 + 26x = 16*10 + 16x 10x = 10*10 x = 10 liters (amt. of 26% solution needed) ============================================== Cheers, Stan H. =========
