Let "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

- Flvs.net

0.2x = 1 where x is the total number of liters of orange juice and water combined.

- AaronAndyson

So there is a total of 5 liters of orange juice and water mixture.
1 L of it is water. Therefore, the rest of 5-1 = 4 liters is orange juice present in the can.

ok so Aaron is part A and Flvs is part B right?

- AaronAndyson

Well.I've answered both parts.

- Flvs.net

Part A) 0.2x = 1 where x is the total number of liters of orange juice and water combined.
Part B)
0.2x = 1
Solve for x.
Orange juice is 80%. The amount of orange juice is: x * 80 / 100. Put x from solving the above equation.
