Default % of Concentration

Ok, I might be missing something here or my wee little brain can not grasp it.

I want to know if it is possible to us the % of concentration to tell me the Brix increase in the sap.
I know the formula for % of concentration:
Premeate gpm/(Concentrate gpm+Permeate gpm)

Example:
Lets say that I am starting with sap that is 1.5%
I am running the RO with a Permeate flow of 4gpm and a concentrate flow of 1.5gpm
4/(1.5+4) = 72.7% concentration rate.

So, what will be my concentrated sap brix be??
Can this even be calculated out? Or do we still need to take a reading of the concentrate to determine the Brix?
