In the lab, Teresa has two solutions that contain alcohol and is mixing them with each other. She uses
4
times as much Solution A as Solution B. Solution A is
17%
alcohol and Solution B is
10%
alcohol. How many milliliters of Solution B does she use, if the resulting mixture has
234
milliliters of pure alcohol?

asked by ward
  1. a = 4b
    .17a + .10b = 234
    so,
    .78b = 234
    b = 300
