The mass of the salt is 24% of the mass of the solution. how many kg of solution should you take to hold 96 kg of salt?

We denote the weight of the solution to be taken as x grams.

This mass will correspond to 100%.

Since we know that 96 kg of salt corresponds to 24% of the total solution, we get the following proportion:

x / 100% = 96/24%.

24 * x = 96 * 100.

24 * x = 9600.

x = 9600/24 = 400 kg.


The solution should weigh 400 kg.
