If you have some way of measuring mL, that is a much easier way to do it.

3785 mL becomes 100%. Just compare that with the ratios you want. You are welcome to post back your numbers here. - I'm sorry not to be more help, i don't really understand the way you are reporting your percentages, it is kind of non standard.

Re: mixing?

What I need is to mix 1 gl of oils at a ration of 1% Syngard .5% milcoside .2% fragrance.
here are my numbers. 1% syngard = 2024 ml --.5% milcoside =1004 ml -- .2 % fragrance = 757 ml - =3785 ml of mix. does this make any sense?
Thank You

Let me do it backwards, and see if this helps.

If 3785mL is 100%, then
2024/3785 x 100% = 53.5%
1004/3785 x 100% = 26.5%
750/3785 x 100% = 19.8%
Total = 53.5 + 26.5 + 19.8 = 99.8% so close enough.

Note using standard nomenclature, 1% of 3785mL is 37.85mL. I think you are expressing ratios. This is written more correctly 10:5:2, which is the reason i got confused sorry.

Good luck for this venture.

Re: mixing?

THANK YOU
I am glad I have the basic concept. I will have to say, you confused me a bit I am barely trying to understand it forward and you did it backward i am trying to figure it out. : ) again thank you hope you will continue helping.

To do this from the start: ratios are usually written as whole numbers, no decimal points. However, 10:5:2 is the same as 1:0.5:0.2

You work the proportions out as follows:

10 + 5 + 2 = 17, so the 17 represents the 3785mL, or whatever volume you are using.

Amount of syngard = 10/17 x 3785 = 2226mL
Amount of milcoside = 5/17 x 3785 = 1113mL
Amount of fragrance = 2/17 x 3785 = 445mL

Is this what you need to know? - Note, if you write down for us how you are calculating it, we can see where we are getting the differences.

Re: mixing?

What if the 1 were a 3 would it be 30+5+2=37? Why did the 1 turn into a 10?

To figure this out i have been just comparing the actual number of gallons needed to a 100.
Then I look for the nearest % then I figure the gallons. My method is terrible but it has got me by..:

Re: mixing?

lets do 32 fl oz = 944 ml
1% syngard .5 % milcoside .5% Infinity .4 % fragrance

10+5+5+4=24

10/24x944=393.3
5/24x944=196.6
5/24x944=196.6
4/24x944=157.3
i think i got it.

Just to make whole numbers, so you don't keep confusing people, lol. That is just the conventional way to present it.

If you are considering 100 gallons, the the gallons you need of each adds 100%. You then don't have to change the %ages for different volumes.

Percentages are always presented as parts of 100%.
