how much whipping cream and 2% milk should be mixed to obtain 35 gallons of milk with 4% butterfat.

if the milk has 2% butterfat and the whipping cream has 9% butterfat

  • math -

    M = amount of milk (gallons)
    C = amount of cream (gallons)
    M + C = 35
    0.02M + C = 0.04 (M + C)

    Solve those two equations for M and C.
