What amount of cream that is 30% butterfat must be mixed with 8 gallons of milk that is 4% butterfat to make a blend that is 14% butterfat?

We have

 

.30 (x)  + .04 (8)  =  .14 (x + 8)    simplify

 

.30x  + .32  = .14x  + 1.12         subtract .32 , .14x  from  both sides

 

.16x  = .80       divide both sides by  .16

 

x = 5   (gallons of 30% butterfat cream)
