10 parts 25% and 5 parts 10% solution equals 20% mixture.
by: David

So we have here, 25 parts (25%) and 10 parts (10%) and we want to get to 20 parts (20%).

higher strength
top left
25% 10 parts
\\ //
20% (desired strength, in the center)
// \\
10% 5 parts
lower
strength
on bottom

So, in this question, we would use 10 parts of the 25% concentration and 5 parts of 10% concentration to equal a 20% mixture.
