Hello there :)

Good you figured it out :)

Please find the solution below:

Let the amount of the 25% Juice be x

Therefore the amount of the 10% Juice would be 15-x

0.25x + 0.1(15-x) = 15 x 0.24

0.25x + 1.5 – 0.1x = 3.6

0.15x = 3.6 – 1.5

0.15x = 2.1

Multiply both sides by 100

15x = 210

x = 210/15

x = 14

Therefore: 14 liters of the 25% orange juice should be in the mixture

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask; if all is clear please rate my services

All the best

Hello

Hello, sorry I was working on another assignment. Ok first here is the solution to the second part

Since x = 14, therefore 15-x = 1

Therefore: 1 liters of the 10% orange juice should be in the mixture

As for the number of questions you are allowed to ask: When you make a post, you need to list all the problems you need help with so that experts decide if the amount offered is fair or not and accordingly decide on whether to answer the question or request an increase in the amount offered.

I am helping another student now so it would be hard to answer your other questions. When is your deadline please?

These are the questions

Ok, since I am helping another student I will opt out from this post in case someone can provide help sooner. After I am done, if no one has helped, I will work on the problems
