Q:
# how much water do you add ￼ to make 12% sugar syrup using 5g sugar?

Accepted Solution

A:

so the syrup is just water and sugar, we know that the sugar percent is just 12%, and that happens to be 5grams.now 100% - 12% is 88%, so the 88% leftover will just be water.if 12% is 5g, how much is 88%?[tex]\bf \begin{array}{ccll} amount&\%\\ \cline{1-2} 5&12\\ x&88 \end{array}\implies \cfrac{5}{x}=\cfrac{12}{88}\implies \cfrac{5}{x}=\cfrac{3}{22}\implies 110=3x \\\\\\ \cfrac{110}{3}=x\implies 36\frac{2}{3}=x[/tex]
