My Math Forum Calculating strength of two solutions when mixed

I've done the math, but I wanted to double check if my numbers were correct. Solution A: 66,600mg of essential oils 133.4ml of other ingredients. 200ml total. 333mg/ml Solution B: 153,000mg of essential oils 380ml of other ingredients 733ml total 287mg/ml When Solution A and Solution B are combined what would be the resulting strength in mg/ml?

I assume you mean the strength of the essential oils.

mixing them gets you

$(66,600+153,000) =219,600~ mg$ of essential oils, and

$200 + 733 = 933~ml$ total so you have

$\dfrac{219,600}{933} = 235.37~mg/ml$

yeah I screwed that up, I somehow got 427mg/ml .

I'm going to double check what I did.

thanks, it's a good thing I decided to double check this

This is consistent. 219,600mg = 219.6ml 219.6ml +133.4ml +380ml =733 Also, considering the strength of the two solutions, shouldn't the resulting solution come out somewhere above 287mg/ml and below 333mg/ml?

Ok I assumed you meant solution b was 733 ml.

Divide the total amount of essential oils in mg by the total volume in ml and that is the strength number you are after.
