Matt wants to make a 25% alcohol solution. He has already poured 1.5 qt. of pure water into a beaker. How many qt. of a 30% alcohol solution must he add to this to create the desired mixture?

Hello Guest!

 

\(x\cdot 30\%=(1.5qt.+x)\cdot 25\%\\ x\cdot 30\%=1.5qt.\cdot 25\%+x\cdot 25\%\\ 0.3x-0.25x=0.25\cdot 1.5qt.\\ 0.05x=0.375qt. \)

\(x=7.5qt.\)

 

 \(7.5qt.\) of a 30% alcohol solution must he add to this to create the desired mixture.
