A pharmacist is to prepare a 50 fluid ounce solution that contains 54% glucose. The pharmacy has a 30% solution and a 90% solution on hand. How many ounces of each solution should be mixed to prepare the desired perscription?

.3x + .9(50x) = .54(50)
Solve for x
Can you see what the equation says?

Ya it says How many ounces of each solution should be mixed to prepare the desired perscription? Why is there a 50 in parentheses next to the .54? So once I solve for x what do I do next?
