ok lets call the amount of bleach used say \(x\)
misty1212
  • misty1212
and the amount of water or whatever is \(32-x\) since the total is \(32\)
misty1212
  • misty1212
then the amount of bleach in the total mixture is \(x\) and you want that to be \(5\%\) of \(32\) which is \(32\times .05=1.6\)
misty1212
  • misty1212
ok i was wrong, @heretohelpalways was correct
misty1212
  • misty1212
use \(1.6\) ounces of bleach, the rest \(32-1.6\) of water or whatever
