one canned juice drink is 15% orange juice; another is 5% orange juice. how many liters of each should be mixed together in order to get 10L that is 9% orange juice?

  • Math 116 -

    x liters of .15 oj
    then (10-x) of .05 oj

    amount of oj in final = .15 x + .05(10-x)
    = .09 *10 = .9
    so
    .15 x +.5 - .05x = .9
    .1 x = .4
    x = 4 liters of .15
    then
    6 liters of .05
