One canned juice drink is 25% orange juice another is 5% orange juice. How many liters of each should be mixed together in order to get 20L that is 24% orange juice?

How many liters of the 25% orange juice should be in mixture?

How many liters of the 5% orange juice should be in mixture?

How can I solve this problem, or what is the best method??

I started the problem and got stuck, I first started with x= amount of 25%

and y= amount of 5%

x+y=20L

0.25x+0.05y=54

100(0.25x+0.05y)=100(54)

25x+5y=5400

is this correct so far? and I am stuck here...
