Vinegar 2

How many percentages of vinegar solution will we get if we mix 3.5 liters of 5.8% and 5 liters of 7.6% vinegar?

Correct answer:

x =  6.86 %

Step-by-step explanation:

x1=3.5 5.8100+5 7.6100=5831000=0.583 l V=3.5+5=8.5 l  x=100 x1V=100 0.5838.5=58385=6.86%

We will be pleased if You send us any improvements to this math problem. Thank you!

Solution is wrong.
x=[12(4.3) + 1(3.7)]/ (12+1)=4.25%

@Nestor the answer is correct. I figured another solution is just to average the concentrations of the solutions as the volume is same.
