contents of the original mix (kg)
sand: 15 x 1/3
coir: 15 x 2/3
Well you can't take any coir out so you're stuck with 10 kg of coir and you want that 10 kg to be 40% of your final mix
if 10 kg is 40% then 1 kg is 4%
the target amount of sand in the final mix is 60/4 (kg)
i.e 15 kg
how much new sand do you have to add to the amount of sand already in the original mix until it's got 15 kg of sand in it?
