My set up is:

10 (.13 + .87) = 10 (.13 + X + .69)

I'm not sure if that's correct.

**Henry**, Tuesday, June 28, 2011 at 5:18pmSilver = 0.13 * 10 = 1.3 grams.

Gold = 10 1.3 = 8.7 grams.

New Alloy: Gold=69% of total solution.

G / (G+S) = 0.69,

8.7 / (8.7 + S) = 0.69,

Cross multiply:

6 + 0.69S = 8.7,

0.69S = 8.7 - 6 = 2.7,

S = 3.91 Grams of silver, total.

3.91 - 1.3 = 2.6 grams of silver added.
