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
