There are 24 shaded units here. 6 come from the first bucket. 18 must come from the second bucket.

Shading each gallon equally to get 18 total shaded units results in each gallon with 9 of 10 shaded units

2 gal of 90% acid solution must be added to 1 gal of 60 % acid solution to yield 3 gal of 80% acid solution.
