Question: a chemist has three different acid solutions the first acid...

Question details

A chemist has three different acid solutions. The first acid solution contains 15 % acid, the second contains 25 % and the third contains 65 % . He wants to use all three solutions to obtain a mixture of 104 liters containing 35 % acid, using 3 times as much of the 65 % solution as the 25 % solution. How many liters of each solution should be used? The chemist should use liters of 15 % solution, liters of 25 % solution, and liters of 65 % solution.
