0.4324 g sample of a potassium hydroxide-lithium hydroxide mixture requires 28.28 ml of 0.3520 M HCl for its titration to the equivalence point. What is the mass percent lithium hydroxide in this mixture?

    You need two equations in two unknowns.
    mass KOH + mass LiOH = 0.4324g
    mols KOH + mols LiOH = 0.02828 x 0.3520
    -----------------
    Let X = mass KOH
    and Y = mass LiOH
    -----------------
    X + Y = 0.4324
    (X/molar mass KOH) + (Y/molar mass LiOH) = 0.02828 x 0.03520
    Solve the two equations for X and Y, then,
    mass % LiOH = (g LiOH/mass sample)*100 = ?
    Post your work if you get stuck.
