Quantity of Orange Juice in

Jug 1 $$= \frac{7}{12}$$

Jug 2 $$= \frac{2}{9}$$

Requirement in the mixture$$= \frac{4}{7}$$

Using Alligation method

$$\frac{\frac{4}{7} - \frac{2}{9}}{\frac{7}{12} - \frac{4}{7}}$$

$$= \frac{88}{3}$$

My 2 cents:
Mixture 1: w:o = 5:7 => w:t = 5:12
Mixture 2: w:o = 7:2 => w:t = 7:9
Final mixture: w:o = 3:4 => w:t = 3:7
x*(5/12) + (1-x)*(7/9) = 3/7
5x/12 + 7/9 - 7x/9 = 3/7
15x + 28 - 28x/(2*2*3*3) = 3/7
28 - 13x/(2*2*3*3) = 3/7
196 - 91x = 108
88 = 91x
x = 88/91 & (1-x) = 3/91
x:(1-x) = 88:3
