 Proportions/692562: a specific shade of red nail polish requires 7 parts of red to 2 parts of yellow. A mixture contains 35 quarts of red and 8 quarts of yellow. How can you fix the mixture to make the correct shade of red? 1 solutions Answer 427056 by ankor@dixie-net.com(15746)   on 2012-12-10 20:11:48 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!a specific shade of red nail polish requires 7 parts of red to 2 parts of yellow. A mixture contains 35 quarts of red and 8 quarts of yellow. How can you fix the mixture to make the correct shade of red? : The red:yellow ratio is 7:2, we can write the mixture as or 77.8% red : The existing mixture of 35:8 is a 43 quart mixture and can be written as: or 81.4% red : we need to add yellow to reduce the per cent of red : Let y = amt of yellow required to do this : *(y+43) = 35 Multiply both sides by 9 7(y+43) = 9 * 35 7y + 301 = 315 7y = 315 - 301 7y = 14 y = 14/7 y = 2 quarts of yellow to be added, for total mixture of 45 quarts ; : Check this, it still contains 35 quarts of red but the percentage has changed = 77.8% red which is what we want, a ratio of 7:2
