I posted this problem earlier, but I still can't figure it out. It is for extra credit. I was hoping if someone could please solve it. I would greatly appreciate it.

A bourbon that is 51 proof is 25.5% alcohol by vol. while one that is 82 proof is 41% alcohol by vol. How many liters of 52 proof bourbon must be mixed with 1.0L of 82 proof bourbon to produce a 66 proof bourbon? Give answer to 3 decimal places.

Thanks in advance for all the help!
