A container holds 250 mL of a solution that is 20 mL acid. If n mL of a solution that is 60% acid is added, the function
C(n) = 20 + .6n/250 + n
gives the concentration, C, as a function of the number of mL added, n. Express n as a function of C.

Use parentheses to clearly show what goes where.
C(n) = (20 + 0.6n)/(250 + n)
250C + Cn= 20 + 0.6n
n(C - 0.6)= 20 - 250C
n(C)= (20 - 250C)/(C - 0.6)
