Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the total number of liters of water is not something you have to find, it is 1 liter what you have to find is the liters of lemon juice name a variable, and say that it represents the number of liters of lemon juice

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do you want to call your variable? ok J = liters of lemon juice, fine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, but we have to find the total of lemon juice and water, not just lemon juice, so i didnt knoe...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if J is the amount of lemon juice and there is one liter of water, then the total amount is \[J+1\] which is why you don't need another variable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then \(60\%\) of the total is lemon juice, the total is \(J+1\) so you can write an equation \[J=0.6\times (J+1)\] and solve that for \(J\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you do it correctly you should get \(J=1.5\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Like @misty1212 said, "J=0.6×(J+1) and solve that for J" First step is J=0.6J+0.6 OK?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0J=0.6J+0.6 so which term includes the variable J

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And J on the left hand side! Move them all to one side but subtracting 0.6J

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0J=0.6J+0.6 subtract 0.6J on the left and right hand side
