There are two important facts in the percent mixture problems: the percent in each mixture and the amount
/quantity of each mixture. You'll typically be taking two mixtures and putting them
into one pot to make a third mixture, and will be asked to calculate either the percent or the quantity of one of the
mixtures.For example, find out how many gallons of a 15% acid solution must be mixed
with 5 gal of a 20 % acid solution to make a 18% solution?
This problem can be written in the form of the equation:
.15x + 1 =.18(5 + x)
When we simplify it, value of x = 33.3 i.e. we'll need 33.3 gallons of
the 15% acid solution.
