Suppose that a semiconductor plant uses 1,000,000 liters of city water per day to keep its production line of semiconductors runing. Also let's suppose that the water supplied to the plant contains 100 parts per million of Magnesium ions. Calculate the amount of Magnesium and water entering and leaving the filtration process.

Below we have created a table with spaces were the data from the problem can be inputed. By reading the problem alone, and without doing any calculations we can start filling up the table.
