If you pick numbers, this solution may be very easy.

Let´s assume that the mixture has 100 ml.

Thus
A = 25ml
B = 75ml

If you double A, now it is 50ml.

The total mixture has now 125ml, because you have add 25ml of fruit A.

The relative share of A now is [50][/125] = 0.4 = 40%
the remaining is 60% of B.

Yeah, choosing a number will make it fairly easy to solve.
