Homework Help: math

Posted by Anna on Thursday, November 5, 2009 at 5:40pm.

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...
