Pharmacy Dilution/Percent Strength Math Problem
by: Anonymous

X/200ml = 30/100 (30%) and figure out for X to

find the amount of diluent

30x200ml = 6000 = 100x

X = 60ml

So next, 60/200ml = 30/100 = 30%, so now we can solve for what the percent strength is in a 600ml solution. 60/600 = 10%

The percentage strength of a 200ml, 30% solution diluted to 600ml is 10%.
