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?
mathstudent55
  • mathstudent55
That means the equation for the water part is: 20%x = 1

so there are 5 liters total? 4 liters = orange juice, 1= water

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

i mean equations LOL

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

I need help with the equation for part a? how do i form. @mathstudent55

0.2x = 1 x = 5 There are 5 liters of liquid Orange juice = 80%x = 0.8 * 5 = 4 liters. was that it? LOL

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