**drwls**, Thursday, March 19, 2009 at 12:10amIf the fraction of "skylight" is x and the fraction of the "macintosh" is 1-x, the fraction of red pigment contained in the mixture will be

0.125 x + 0.20 (1-x) = 0.17

Solve for x.

0.03 = 0.075x

x = 0.4 = skylight fraction

(1-x) = 0.60 = macintosh fraction
