What quantity of 65 per cent acid solution must be mixed with a 25 percent solution to produce 384 mL of a 50 per cent solution?

  • calculus -

    Let there be x mL of 65% solution and y mL of 25% solution.

    x + y = 384

    Amount of acid:
    0.50*384 = 192 = 0.65 x + 0.25 y

    768 = 2.6 x + y

    Subtract the first equation from the third.

    1.6 x = 384
    x = 240 mL
    y = 144 mL
