looks very similar to the question just posted by Lily.

let the amount of 30% solution we want to add be x l

now let's reason it through....

the volume of acid we have before adding is .3(10) l or 3 l

we are adding x l of a 20% solution so we are adding .2x l

but the final solution containing 10+x l is to contain 25% acid or .25(10+x) l of acid

so isn't our equation...

3 + .2x = .25(10+x) ?

solve for x and tell me what you got.
