Water temperatures

To 25 liters of water at 50 °C we add 15 liters of water at a different temperature. How many °C should the water be colder than 50 °C so that 40 liters of the water obtained has a temperature 42.5 °C?

Result

x =  20 l

Solution:


25*50 +15*(50-x)=40*42.5

15x = 300

x = 20

Calculated by our simple equation calculator.
