how many gallons of a 90% antifreeze solution must be mixed with 100 gallons of 30% antifreeze to get a mixture that is 80% antifreeze?

  • Intermediate Algebra -

    let the amount of 90% antifreeze to be added be x gallons

    .9x + .3(100) = .8(100+x)
    times 10
    9x + 3(100) = 8(100+x)
    9x+300 = 800+8x
    x = 500

    500 gallons of the 90% must be added.
