His current favorite is a carrot drink that contains 40% pure carrot juice. He has been to the store and has found some concentrated juice that is 60% pure carrot juice. His wife, Alicia, found some carrot juice on sale at a different health-food store, and she brought home 80 quarts. It contains 12% pure carrot juice. How many gallons of the concentrated 60% carrot juice does Eric need to add to the 80 quarts that Alicia brought home to produce his perfect drink containing 40% carrot juice?

If not - please change calculation properly. we have 80 q of 12% juice, uknown amount of 60% to add to get 40% juice. What we need is 40%=0,4 juice, so it mean 'pure juice'/volume=0,4 pure juice means how many 100% juice is in volume, for example in 12% 'juice per gallon) So, we need 0,4 juice and volume would be 20g + V(where V=Volumen of 60% juice). Amount of juice would be 0,12x20g+0,6xV. Do you follow? So 0,4 = (0,12x20g+0,6*V)/(80+V) calculate 0,4x20g+0,4V=2,4g+0,6V 8g-2,4g=0,2V 5,6g=0,2V V=28g Check 20g x 0,12 + 28 g x 0,6=2,4+16,6=19,2 juice/g (of 'pure' juice) volume= 20g+28g=48g concetration of mixed juice 19,2/48=0,4 = 40% Get healthy
