90% reactors under safeguards?
In a chat with Indian and Pakistani journalists, Assistant Sec. of State Richard Boucher reckoned that over a period of time, 90% of India's nuclear reactors would be placed under IAEA safeguards. The India-US civilian nuclear deal announced that 14 out of the 22 reactors would be placed under safeguards by 2014.
Solve for x:Now that calculation assumes that every new reactor built by India would be under safeguards. If the government decided that 80% of all future reactors would be placed under safeguards, India would need to build nearly 73 reactors before the magic number of 90% is reached. How?
(14+kx)/(22+kx)=.9, k is the %age of new reactors which will be under safeguards
