| **By mixing 40% and 15% solutions of the same substance, a 20% solution was obtained. How many times took more by weight of a 15% solution than a 40%?**

let the mass of a 15% solution be n times greater, then

m is the mass of a 40% solution, and n * m is the mass of a 15% solution, then

0.4m + 0.15 * (n * m) = 0.20 * (m + n * m)

0.4 + 0.15n = 0.20 + 0.20n

0.05n = 0.2

n = 4

Answer: 4
