Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Let "x" be the total number of liters of orange juice and water combined. 80% of the mixture is pure orange juice which means 20% of it is water. Therefore, x * 20/100 = 1 is the equation in single variable that can be used to find x. Therefore, x/5 = 1 Therefore, x = 5
