*suppose you have one quart of water/juice mix that is 40% juice, *

*and you add 3 quarts of water. What percent juice is the final mix?*

You start out with 1**.**0 quart of mix that's 40% juice, so

you have 0**.**4 qt of juice and 0**.**6 qt of water.

You add 3**.**0 qts of water and the mix becomes

0**.**4 qt of juice and 3**.**6 qt of water.

That resultant mix is a total of 4**.**0 qt of which 0**.**4 qt is juice.

The final proportion of juice is 0**.**4 / 4**.**0 = 0**.**1 which stated as a percentage is **10%**
