in her chemistry class, Lauren must produce 300ml of an 80% acid solution. Her teacher gives her two concentrations of acid solution, a 50% and a 100%. determine how much of each concentration that she must use.

  • math - ,

    .5x + 1y = .8(300)
    x + y = 300
    x = 300 - y

    .5(300-y) + 1y = 240
    150 - .5y + 1y = 240
    1/2y = 90
    y = 180 ml
    300-180 = x = 120ml

    use 120ml 50%
    use 180ml 100%
