Question: How many gallons of milk that is 10% butterfat must be added to 8 gallons of milk that is 35% butterfat to obtain milk that is 20% butterfat? Hello, let x be the number of gallons of milk with 10% butterfat. For confirmation only: 10% = 0.1 and 35% = 0.35 Then you know: So you have to add 12 gallons of milk with 10% of butterfat.
Wow, it just seems so easy once you explain it. Thanks a bunch!
