500 ml of a 1:5 solution contains 500*(1/5)=100 ml. of the concentrate.

So if x is the volume of 1:4, then 500-x is the volume of 1:10.

Hence

x(1/4)+(500-x)(1/10)=500*(1/5)

Solve for x to get x=333.33 ml.

a chemist needs 130ml of a 75% solution but has only 67% and 80% solutions available. find how many milliliters of each that should be mixed to get the desired solution.
