Question Stats:

0% (00:00) correct 0% (00:00) wrong based on 0 sessions
In what proportion should a 30%-solution and a 3%-solution be mixed to obtain a 12%-solution?

1:3
1:2
2:3
3:4
4:5

Please can someone help solve this problem. Also if you can share any tips to solve mixture problemns it will help. I seem to get confused or thrown off with the percentages.

(C-B):(A-C) is actually the ratio of A:B that we need to obtain C.

In this case (12-3):(30-12) => 9:18 => 1:2

Hope this will help.

I guess that it's ideal for this sort of questions. It may not be helpful in solving other problems.

Thanks for the info. Would you use this relationship to solve most of the mixture problems?
