Need some help with this. Please! I have 150 dL of a 25% solution of peroxide in water. How many dL of pure peroxide should be added to obtain a 40% solution?

(150 dL)(25%) + (x dL)(100%) = (150 + x dL)(40%) solve for x
How do you figure = (150 + x dL)(40%)? (Sorry, I'm trying to help my 9th grader and it's been 30 years for me).
(150 dL)(25%) + (x dL)(100%) = (150 + x dL)(40%) multiply out the left side, distribute the 40 on the right side 3750 + 100x = 6000 + 40x your 9th grader should be able to finish from here.
That's the direction he was heading but wasn't sure. He's got it from here. Thanks!
