### Example #6

In a bottle mixture of 80 liters and the ratio of milk and water is 3 : 2. If this mixture ratio is to be 2 : 3. What is the quantity of water to be further added?

- 30 Liters
- 36 Liters
- 40 Liters
- 42 Liters

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (C)

**How to Solve**

Quantity of Milk ( 80 x 3 / 5 ) = 48 liters.

So, quantity of Water in it ( 80 – 48 ) = 32 liters.

New Ratio required 2 : 3.

Let, X water to be added

Now, Milk : Water is = 48 : (32 + X)

= 48 / (32 + X)

Now, 48 / (32 + X) = 2 : 3

48 / (32 + X) = 2 / 3

2X = 144 – 64

X = 80 / 2

= 40 liters.

### Example #7

The ratio between the number of Men and Women in a society is 31 : 23. When 75 more women are added in the society, this ratio becomes 124 : 107. How many more women should be added in the society in order to make the number of men and women be equal?

- 82
- 85
- 88
- 95

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (B)

**How to Solve**

31x / 23x + 75 = 124 / 107

3317x = 2852x + 9300

465x = 9300

x = 20 .

So, the number of women in society after added

= 20 x 23 + 75 = 535.

So, the number of men in society after added

= 31 x 20 = 620.

Number of more women is = 620 – 535 = 85.

### Example #8

In a liquid mixture of 60 liters, the ratio of milk and water is 2 : 1. If this ratio is to be 1 : 2, then the quantity of water to be further added is?

- 50 Liters
- 60 Liters
- 62 Liters
- 69 Liters

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (B)

**How to Solve**

So, Quantity of milk = ( 60 x 2 / 3 ) = 40 liters.

Water in it = ( 60 – 40 ) = 20 liters.

New ratio required = 1 : 2

Let, quantity of water to be added further be X liters.

Milk : Water = 40 / ( 20 + x )

Now,

40 / ( 20 + x ) = 1 / 2

20 + x = 80

x = 60 liters

So, 60 liters of water to be added further.

- 55/3%
- 68/3%

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (A)

**How to Solve**

20% present in a 15 liters mixture

So, 20 x 15 / 100 = 3 liters of Alcohol.

Water in it ( 15 – 3 ) = 12 liters.

New quantity of mixture = ( 15 + 3 ) = 18 liters.

Percentage of alcohol in new mix is = ( 3 x 100 / 18 ) % = 50 / 3.

**Answer:**Option (B)

**How to Solve**

Total mixture is 80 liters and ratio is 3 : 2

So, Milk is 80 x 3 / 5 = 240 / 5 = 48 liters.

Water is ( 80 – 48 ) = 32 liters.

48 / ( 32 + x ) = 32

2x = 80

x = 40

Quantity of water to be added more is 40 liters.

### Example #12

In a mixture of 25 liters has contains 40% milk and remaining is water. If 5 liters of water mix with it, then what would be the new percentage of milk in mixture?

- 100/3%
- 101/3%
- 110/3%
- 111/3%

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (A)

**How to Solve**

40% milk means 60% water

So, milk in mixture is = 25 x 40 / 100 = 10 liters.

and water in mixture is ( 25 – 10 ) = 15 liters.

new mixture quantity = ( 25 + 5 ) = 30 liters.

10 x 100 / 30 = 100 / 3 liters.

So, new percentage of milk in mixture is 100 / 3 liters.

thank u

sir inQ3 ratio of cu: zn is 9:3 so weight of cu must be more than Zn

pls explain it

sir plz tell me how to solve if a:b=2:3, b:c=4:5 c:d=6:7 what is the ratio of a:b:c:d with short method

A:B=m:n

B:C=p:q

C:D=r:s

A:B:C:D=mpr:npr:nqr:nqs

hi just arrange the words horizontally as a:b:c:d

1. a:b – 2:3

2. b:c – 4:5

3. c:d – 6:7

a b c d

2 3

4 5

6 7

a = 2*4*6 = 48

b = 3*4*6 = 72

c = 3*5*6 = 90

d = 3 *5*7 = 105

a:b:c:d = 48:72:90:105 after simplifying = 16;24;30;35

first b:c and c:d value take it,

4:5 and 6:7

then common value of =c to l.c.m

5&6=30 so convert the value of c

4*6:5*6and6*5:7*5

24:30and 30:35,

so c is common value=30

so, b:c:d=24:30:35

then,take it a:b and b:c:d

2:3 and 24:30:35

then, common b value 3 and 24 l.c.m in 24,

so, 2*8:3*8and 24*1:30*1:35*1

then,16:24 and 24:30:35

common value of b=24,

ans,a:b:c:d=16:24:30:35
