Mixture problems are word problems in algebra which are solved either using a linear equation in single variable or a system of equations in two variables. Mixture problems are generally formed based on value, money or concentration.
The mixture tasks are solved in three main steps:
1. Identify the variable/s.
2. Form the equation/s.
3. Solve the equations formed to get the solution for the mixture problem.

Let us learn the methods involved in solving mixture problems in detail.

Concentration and amount of substance contained are key factors in solving mixture problems.
In solvent, solute problems they are related by the formula,

Amount of substance (solute) contained = Concentration x Total volume of the Solution
The related formula in value related problems is,

Value of an item = rate $\times$ weight or quantity of the item.
While solving, mixture problems, equations are formed on the amount of substance in the mixture.
The amount of substance in the mixture is equal to the sum of the substances in each of the mixing solutions of the mixture.

C1V1 + C2V2 = CV

where C1, C2 and C are the concentrations corresponding to volumes V1, V2 and V. The letters with subscripts refer to concentration and volume of the mixing solutions, while the letters without subscript refer to the final mixture.
