milk containing 6% fat per gallon is pumped into a tank that initially contains 300 gal of milk at 3% fat. the rate at which the milk is pumped in is 3 gal per min, whereas the mixed liquid is pumped out at the same rate.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) find the number of gallons of fat in the tank at any time.

b) what is the percentage of fat in the tank as time goes to infinity?

this is what i have so far:

r1=3 gal/min

c1 = ... im not sure about the percents... how to work with them in this kind of problem

r2 = 3 gal/min

c2= yet more confusion

initial volume = V(0) = 300 gal

initial amount = A(0)= 3% ?????
