User: Brine is a solution of salt and water. If a tub contains 50 gallons of a 5% solution of brine, how much water must evaporate to change it to an 8% solution? a.81.25 gallons b.62.50 gallons c.18.75 gallons

Weegy: The answer is 18.75 gallons. 50 lbs of 5% brine sol? 5/100 x 50 = 250/100 = 2.5 lbs brine rest will be water i.e. [ 95% water = 50 - 2.5 = 47.5 lbs evaporation will reduce water not brine. 8% of 'a' = 2.5 a = 2.5 x 100/8 = 31.35 lbs the solution reduced from 50 to 31.35 50 - 31.35 = 18.75 lbs of water was evaporated. ]

User: To reduce 16 ounces of a 25% solution of antiseptic to a 10% solution, how much distilled water should a nurse add? a.12 oz b.24 oz c.36 oz

Weegy: Let x represent the amount of distilled water in ounces (Distilled water is a 0% solution of antiseptic) .25(16) + 0x = .1(16 + x).... 4 + 0 = 1.6 + .1x.... 4 - 1.6 = .1x.... 2.4 = .1x.... 2.4/.1 = x.... 24 = x.... The nurse should add 24 oz of [ distilled water ]

User: A man invests a certain amount of money at 2% interest and \$800 more than that amount in another account at 4% interest. At the end of one year he earned \$112 in interest. How much money was invested in each account? Which of the following equations could be used to solve the problem? a.0.02x + 0.04(800) = 112 b.0.02x + 0.04(x + 800) = 112 c.0.04x + 0.02(x + 800) = 112

Weegy: 0.02x + 0.04(x + 800) = 112
