The octane rating of a gasoline is a measure of the amount of isooctane in the gas. Manufacturers recommend using 93-octane gasoline on returned motors. How much 87-octane gas and 95 octane gas should Yousef mix in order to make 10 gal of 93 octane gas for his returned Ford F-150?

    Hello again, I would like to know how to figure out how to make the equation, then solve

    Hey! We have t make 93 octane and 10 gallons. so our total amount will be 0.93*10.

    Moving along: total gallons will be 10. so 0.95(10-x) Final equation: 0.87x + 0.95(10-x) = 0.93*10

    There's one more method too if this looks hard to you. Let me know if this is hard to understand.

    This method looked a bit more difficult than the latter, do you have an easier method?

    x + y = 10 87x + 95y = 93*10

    I don't know why but my equation seems wrong... x+y=2 4x+y=5 x=-y+5 -4y+20+y=5 -3y+20=5 -3y=-20+5 -3y=-15 -3y/-3=-15/-3 y=5 x=-5+5 x=0???

    How much lowfat milk(1% fat) and how much whole milk(4% fat) should be mixed to make 5 gal of reduced fat milk (2% fat)?

    x + y = 5 0.01x + 0.04y = 0.02*5

    It's pretty simple. For equation 1. find the total amount. it will be x+y = 5(total gallons)

    for equation 2. Now we have 3 values left. 1%, 4% and 2% We have to make 2% so: 0.01x + 0.04y = 0.02 *5 *5 because total are 5 gals.
