Let be the 2 numbers thus,
Divide equation (2) by 3 thus,
Substitute that into equation (1) thus,
hi im in a hurry and i dont get a few problems please help...
-The diffrence between two numbers is 16. Three times the larger number is nine times smaller. What are the numbers? Show some work if you can please....
-A gardener has two kinds of solutions containing weed killer and water. One solution is 5% weed killer and the other solutiion is 15% weed killer. The gardener needs 100 liters of a 12% solution of weed killer and wants to make it by mixing it himself. How much of each solution should he use?
THX FAST PLX!
Let be the amout of weedkiller solution for 5% and 15% respectively.
Thus, he want to make 100 thus,
Now for the second part since the first solution has 5% the amount of actual weedkiller is similarily the amount of actual weekiller for the second one is .
Now he mixes them in such a way that he has 12% of weedkiller thus, there are
12%(100) of actual weedkiller thus, 12. Thus, the two equations are:
Multiply the second by 20 thus,
From the second subtract the first,
Thus, of 15% solution.
Thus, of 5% solution.
