x+y=110

.53x+.97y=.65*110

x=110-y

.53(110-y)+.97y=.65*110

.53*110-.53y+.97y=.65*110

.97y-.53y=(.65-.53)*110

.44y=.12*110

y=.12*110/.44 = 30 ml

x=110-30 = 80 ml

So, you need 80 ml of the 53% solution and 30 ml of the 97% solution.

Let x be the volume of the 53% solution and y be the volume of the 97% solution. The total volume will be x + y = 110 ml. The equation for the concentration is 0.53x + 0.97y = 0.65(110). Solving these two equations simultaneously gives x = 50 ml of the 53% solution and y = 60 ml of the 97% solution.

### A chemist has one solution that is 60 percent chlorinated and another solution that is 40 percent chlorinated How much of the first 60 percent solution is needed to make a 100 L solution that is 50?

To create a 50% chlorinated solution from the 60% and 40% solutions, the chemist will need to mix the two in equal amounts. Therefore, 50 L of the 60% solution and 50 L of the 40% solution are needed to make a 100 L solution that is 50% chlorinated.

### A chemist needs 4 liters of a 50 percent salt solution All she has available is a 20 percent salt solution and a 70 percent salt solution How much of each of the two solutions should she mix to obtain?

To achieve a 50% salt solution with 4 liters total volume, the chemist needs 2 liters of each of the 20% and 70% solutions. This is because the resulting solution will be a combination of the two strengths in equal amounts, leading to an overall concentration of 50%.

### A chemist needs 90 milliliters of a 77 percent solution but has only 75 percent and 84 percent solutions available Find how many milliliters of each that should be mixed to get the desired solution?

Let v be the capacity in milliliters of the 75% solution required then (90 - v) is the required capacity of the 84% solution needed. 75/100v + 84/100(90 - v) = 77/100 x 90 75v + 84(90 - v) = 77 x 90 75v + 7560 - 84v = 6930 9v = 7560 - 6930 = 630 v = 70 : therefore (90 - v) = 20 The mixed solution requires 70ml of the 75% solution and 20ml of the 84% solution to create 90ml of 77% solution.
