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%
