Let x = amount of vinegar
if she wants to make a solution that's 30% vinegar and 70% olive oil, then you would need to make the ratio x/(x+14) equal to 0.3
this is because x/(x+14) is the percentage of x teaspoons of vinegar out of the total amount x+14 teaspoons
x/(x+14) = 0.3
x = 0.3(x+14)
x = 0.3x+0.3*14
x = 0.3x+4.2
x - 0.3x = 4.2
0.7x = 4.2
x = 4.2/0.7
x = 6
So she needs 6 teaspoons of vinegar
If she has 6 teaspoons of vinegar and fourteen tablespoons of olive oil, then she will have 6+14 = 20 teaspoons of solution
the percentage of vinegar is 6/20 = 0.3 = 30%
the percentage of olive oil is 14/20 = 0.7 = 70%
so that checks out
teaspoons and tablespoons are not interchangeable units :-)
