Distilled water

Sea water contains 5% salt. How many distilled water should be pour to 40 kg of sea water so that the salt content is 2%. How many kilograms of 2% of sea water we get?

Result

x =  60
y =  100

Solution:


40*0.05=y*0.02
y = x+40

0.02y = 2
x-y = -40

x = 60
y = 100

Calculated by our linear equations calculator.
