A scientist has two solutions, which she has labeled Solution A and Solution B. Each contains salt. She knows that Solution A is 30% salt and Solution B is 55% salt. She wants to obtain
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Solution A =3/10 salt Per ounce
Solution B = 11/20 salt per ounce
Let solution A in mixture be x ounce and solution B be Y
3/10 x + 11/20 y = (35*140)/100
X + y = 140
X +y = 140
6x +6y = 840
5y = 100 and y = 20
x + 20 =140 thus x = 120
Thus the scientists should use 120 ounces of solution A and
20 ounces of solution B
I have noticed a mistake i made, Kindly use this as the solution to the questions.
5y = 140 and y = 28
x + 28 =140 thus x = 112
Thus the scientists should use 112 ounces of solution A and
28 ounces of solution B
