In summary, the ratio of Liquid X to Liquid Y in a mixture is 3 to 7. If the amount of Liquid Y in the mixture is 161, then the amount of Liquid X in the mixture is equal to 3/7 of 161, or 69.

$$Y=\frac{7m}{10}=161$$

From that, can you find the amount for $X$, i.e. $\frac{3}{10}$ of the mixture?

The ratio of Liquid X to Liquid Y in the mixture is 3 to 7.

To calculate the amount of Liquid X and Liquid Y in the mixture, you can use the ratio as a guide. For every 3 units of Liquid X, there are 7 units of Liquid Y. So if you have a total of 10 units in the mixture, 3 units will be Liquid X and 7 units will be Liquid Y.

Yes, you can change the ratio of Liquid X to Liquid Y in the mixture by adding or removing amounts of each liquid. However, the total amount of liquid in the mixture will also change.

Knowing the ratio of Liquid X to Liquid Y in the mixture is important for accurately measuring and mixing the liquids. It can also help in determining the properties of the mixture, such as density or concentration.

Yes, the ratio of Liquid X to Liquid Y can be simplified to its lowest terms. In this case, the simplified ratio would be 3:7.
