Q13. How many litres of water will have to be added to 1125 litres of the 45% solution of acid so that the resulting mixture will contain more than 25% but less than 30% acid content?
Let x litres of water is required to be added.
Total mixture = (x+1125) litres
It is evident that amount of acid contained in the resulting mixture is 45% of 1125 litres.
The resulting mixture contain more than 25 % but less than 30% acid.
Thus, the number of litres water that is to be added will have to be more than 562.5 and less than 900 litres.
