    The total content of the can is x. That means that part of x is orange juice and part of x is water.

    Since the can has only orange juice and water and the orange juice part is 80%, that means the water part must be 20%. Ok so far?

    20% of x = 1 liter?

    That means the equation for the water part is: 20%x = 1

    For part B, first solve for x, the total amount of liquid in the can.

    0.2x = 1 x = 5 There are 5 liters of liquid Orange juice = 80%x = 0.8 * 5 = 4 liters.

    You keep getting the answers before me. I think I should be asking for your help instead of you asking me for help!

    We did the equation above: 20%x = 1 or simply 0.2x = 1
