Ok, this is a serious question. In orientation, we were told to wear insect repellent that’s at least 36% DEET. Now, I know, some people might be suspicious of chemicals. All I know is that malaria definitely kills people, so I’ll wear DEET on my feet to avoid it. Even though it melts my toenail polish. Which is serious-I wear sandals every single day here!
But, back to math. I have a 6 ounce bottles of bug spray with 25% DEET that I want to mix with a 1 ounce bottle of 100% DEET. I tried to figure out how much of the 100% stuff I should put into the 25% stuff, but I gave up. To all my math teachers, I’m really sorry, it’s not your fault. So, I’ve just been dumping both bottles together and figuring that it must be close. I won’t be able to tell you if you get it right or not, though, you’ll have to argue amongst yourselves.
