Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That means the equation for the water part is: 20%x = 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.10.2x = 1 x = 5 There are 5 liters of liquid Orange juice = 80%x = 0.8 * 5 = 4 liters.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.00.2x = 1 x = 5 There are 5 liters of liquid Orange juice = 80%x = 0.8 * 5 = 4 liters. was that it? LOL

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1We did the equation above: 20%x = 1 or simply 0.2x = 1
