# If you mix 150 grams of a 22% sugar solution and 250 grams of a 16% sugar solution, what percent of the mixture is sugar?

Sugar makes up 18.2% of the mass percentage.

The mass of the solute divided by the mass of the solution and multiplied by 100 is the percent by mass.

Step 1: Find out the solute's mass.

The mass of sugar in each solution needs to be determined.

In the solution for 22%:

The 16% solution contains:

Total sugar mass is 33 g plus 40 g, or 73 g.

Step 2: Calculate the solution's mass.

The two solutions have a combined mass of 400 g (150 g + 250 g).

Step 3: Calculate the sugar's mass percentage.

Sugar makes up 18.2% of the mass percentage.
