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?

  6 gallon final product

 

x = 10%          gloss content    =   .10 x

(6-x) = 35%    gloss content    =   .35 (6-x)

 

final product =     .30 (6)

 

 

.10x         +      .35 (6-x)       =    .30 (6)       solve for 'x' which is 10% amount    then   6-x = 35% amount
