Let the number of Liters of 20% solution = T

12%*14 + 20%*T = 13%[14 + T]

1.68 + 0.20T = 1.82 + 0.13T      subtract 0.13T from both sides

1.68 + 0.07T = 1.82                   subtract 1.68 from both sides

0.07T = 0.14                              divide both sides by 0.07

T = 2 - Liters of 20% solution will be needed to make 13% solution.
