Ratio of Anti-Freeze to Water
Date: 7/28/96 at 2:47:59 From: Anonymous Subject: Ratio of Liquid to Make Mixture I have a 1 gallon (128 oz.) container of anti-freeze/coolant. I need to fill my radiator with a 60/40 mixture of the anti-freeze and water (60 percent antifreeze, 40 percent water). How much water should I add to the gallon of anti-freeze to make a 60/40 solution? Thank you.

Assuming the same density of water and anti-freeze, this would be 85.33 oz of water per gallon of anti-freeze. -Doctor Anthony, The Math Forum Check out our web site! http://mathforum.org/dr.math/
