Can someone set these word problems up so that I can solve for the answer. 1. One canned juiced drink is 20% orange juice; another is 10% orange juice. How much many liters of each should be mixed together in order to get 10L that is 18% orange juice? How many liters of the 20% orange juice should be in the mixture? How many liters of the 10% orange juice should be in the mixture?

    Well what I guess is that this problem has infinitely many solutions! You get only ONE equation which has TWO variables. So obviously there are many many solutions to it. The equation is - 20% (X liters) + 10% (Y liters) = 18% (10L) where X and Y are the amount of total juice in the two cans respectively. I am giving you a few possible solutions - X = 1.6L Y = 2L X = 5L Y = 8L etc. Hope that helps!
