The Mixture Problem

The mixture problem is a classic problem encountered in most algebra courses. It is solved by a simple application of linear equations.
The problem is stated as follows: given a solution of volume with concentration percent mixed with a solution of volume with concentration percent, we obtain a solution of volume with concentration percent. If , , , and are known, find .
Concentrations out of the range 0–100% simply mean that the given mixture is not possible in practice.
