# Home cleaning

Mr. Smith is cleaning up a big mess at home. In the closet, he finds a solution that is 5% bleach, and another stronger solution that is 20% bleach. For this particular job, he needs 600mL of 15% bleach. How much of each type (to the nearest mL) should he mix together to do this cleaning job?

Result

a =  200
b =  400

#### Solution:

a+b = 600
0.05a + 0.20b = 0.15 * 600

a+b = 600
0.05a+0.2b = 90

a = 200
b = 400
