A paint mixer wants to mix paint that is 10% glosswith paint that is 35% gloss to make 6 gallons of paint that is 30% gloss. How many gallons of each paint should the paint mixer mix together?

.10 x    = amount of gloss in  10%

   .35 (6-x)   = amount of gloss in 35%

 

.10x    + .35 (6-x)        =    .30(6)       solve for 'x' the gals of 10% then   35% = 6-x
