Let the number of grams of 6% alcohol solution==S

Then, the number of grams of 8% alcohol solution ==640 - S

0.06S + 0.08 * [640 - S] ==0.0675 * 640

0.06S + 51.2 - 0.08 ==43.2

0.06S - 0.08S == 43.2 - 51.2

- 0.02S == - 8

**S ==8 / 0.02 ==400 grams 0f 6% alcohol solution**

**640 - 400 == 240 grams of 8% alcohol solution.**
