Gasoline-oil ratio

The manufacturer of a scooter engine recommends a gasoline-oil fuel mixture ratio of 15 to 1. In a particular garage, we can buy pure gasoline and a gasoline-oil mixture, 75% gasoline.

How much gasoline and gasoline-oil mix do we need to make 8.0 L of fuel for the scooter engine?

Correct answer:

a =  6 l
b =  2 l

Step-by-step explanation:


a+b = 8.0
(1-0.75) b = 8.0 • (1/(1+15))

a+b = 8.0
(1-0.75)•b = 8.0 • (1/(1+15))

a+b = 8
0.25b = 0.5

a = 6
b = 2

Our linear equations calculator calculates it.
b=2 l
