If 12 ounces of a strong vinegar solution are diluted with 50 ounces of water to form a three-percent vinegar solution, what was the concentration of the original solution?

19.3%
17%
16.67%
15.5%
12.5%

Weak in mixtures and the OE is not clear.Other methods?

New volume of the diluted solution = 12+50 = 62 oz.
Total vinegar present in solution = 3% = 62*3/100 = 1.86 oz
Concentration of original solution = 1.86*100/12 = 15.5%
