Solution A wnet from 5/8 to 3/8, by taking 16 units out, of this 16 units 10 were solution A, if 10 units = 2/8, then 1/8 = 5 units, and the total is 40 units.

Sorry I forgot if the problem used liters or gallons. (Damn us americans for being different)

In the earlier mixtre problem I had used a formual and I will use that again to ge the results:

(3/5) = 1- (16/M)

M= total amoutn of the mixture in the cask originally

=> M = 40.
