Problem 61

A company wants to increase the 10% peroxide content of its product by adding pure peroxide (100% peroxide). If x liters of pure peroxide are added to 500 liters of its 10% solution, the concentration, C(x), of the new mixture is given by C(x) = x + 0.1(500) x + 500 . How many liters of pure peroxide should be added to produce a new product that is 28% peroxide?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

August 18 2016 Lecture 1, syllabus, and 2.1 notes Basic question: what happens to f(x) and x approaches a f(a) Example: As x approaches 3 f(x) (y) approaches what Limit in this case is 2 because as you go along both sides of the line the closer to x=3 the line gets the closer to 2=y the line gets. Thus the limit is 2. A limit is how a function f behaves as it approaches a certain point.
