# To 160 g of a 10% salt solution was added 40 g of a 30% salt solution. What is the percentage of salt in the resulting solution?

| We find the mass of salt in each solution.

To do this, multiply the total weight of the solution by the percentage of salt in it.

Will:

160 * 10% = 160 * 0.1 = 16 g (in the first).

40 * 30% = 40 * 0.3 = 12 g (in the second).

Determine the total mass of the two solutions.

160 + 40 = 200 grams.

Find the total weight of the salt in the two solutions.

16 + 12 = 28 grams.

From this it follows that the concentration of salt in the resulting solution will be equal to:

28/200 * 100% = 0.14 * 100% = 14%.

Answer:

fourteen%.
