Say we need to add \(x\) liters of 10% salt solution, then the amount of 20% salt solution would be \(10-x\) as we want 10 liters

salt in \(x\) liters of 10% solution = \(0.1x\) salt in \(10-x\) liters of 20% solution = \(0.2(10-x)\)

Since we want the final solution to have 12% salt, add the previous expressions and set it equal to \(0.12(10)\) : \[0.1x +0.2(10-x) ~=~0.12(10) \] solve \(x\)
