An 80% acid solution is to be mixed with a 30% solution to get 90 gallons of a 50% solution. How many gallons of each solution are needed?

  • math -

    0.8x + 0.3(90-x) = .5(90)

    .8x + 27 -.3x = 45
    .5x +27 = 45
    .5x + 27 - 27 = 45-27

    .5x = 18
    x = 36

    36 at 80%
    54 at 30%
