Amount of ethanol in 20 gallons of unknown concentration = 20x Amount of ethanol in 60 gallons of 12% solution = 60 * 0.12 Amount of ethanol in 80 gallons of 10% solution = 80 * 0.1 Now we can construct an equation as follows: \[\large 20x+60\times0.12=80\times0.1\] which simplifies to: \[\large 20x+7.2=8\]

Now just solve the last equation to find the value of x.
