Sea water

Mixing 62 kg of sea water with 84 kg rainwater is created water containing 3.1% salt. How many percent sea water contains salt?

Result

x =  7.3 %

Solution:

m1=62 kg m2=84 kg  p=3.1 %  p=100 x100 m1m1+m2  p m1+m2100=x100 m1  p (m1+m2)=x m1  x=p m1+m2m1=3.1 62+8462=7310=7.3=7.3%m_{1}=62 \ \text{kg} \ \\ m_{2}=84 \ \text{kg} \ \\ \ \\ p=3.1 \ \% \ \\ \ \\ p=100 \cdot \ \dfrac{ \dfrac{ x }{ 100 } \cdot \ m_{1} }{ m_{1}+m_{2} } \ \\ \ \\ p \cdot \ \dfrac{ m_{1}+m_{2} }{ 100 }=\dfrac{ x }{ 100 } \cdot \ m_{1} \ \\ \ \\ p \cdot \ (m_{1}+m_{2})=x \cdot \ m_{1} \ \\ \ \\ x=p \cdot \ \dfrac{ m_{1}+m_{2} }{ m_{1} }=3.1 \cdot \ \dfrac{ 62+84 }{ 62 }=\dfrac{ 73 }{ 10 }=7.3=7.3 \%
