    If you really want an expert to help you, be sure to follow directions and type your subject in the School Subject box. Any other words, including obscure abbreviations, are likely to delay responses from a teacher who knows that subject well.

    oj in x liters of 30% = .3x
    oj in (20-x) liters of 10% = .1(20-x)
    oj in 20 liters of 18% = .18(20)

    .3x + .1(20-x) = .18(20)
    .3x + 2 - .1x = 3.6
    .2x = 1.6
    x = 8

    so, 8L of 30% + 12L of 10% = 20L of 18%

    8*.3 + 12*.1 = 2.4+1.2 = 3.6 = .18*20
