334 litres of a 20% solution would give .2(334)= 66.8 litres of concentrate. Adding that to the original 50 litres gives 116.8 litres of concentrate in a total of 500+ 334= 834 litres. That is a concentration of 116.8/834= .14 or 14%. Looks good!and I want to add another solution to it which is 20% concentration to have a total concentration of 14%, how much of the 20% solution do I need to add? I think the answer is 334 litres but I am not sure how I came to this answer can anyone teach me a formula?
Let "x" be the amount added. That will be .2x of concentrate giving a total of 50+ .2x concentrate in 500+ x litres. That is a concentration of (50+ .2x)/(500+ x)= .14. Solve that for x.Thanks
