Question

A 400 liter mixture of milk and water contains 58% milk. How many more liters of water should be added so that the proportions of milk and water become equal?

A

64 liter.

B

65 liter.

C

63 liter.

D

67 liter.

Soln.
Ans: a

The volume of milk will remain same at ${58 × 400}/100$ = 232 liters. The amount of water at present is 400 - 232 = 168 liters. We need to make the volume of water equal to that of the milk. So we have to add 232 - 168 = 64 liters of water.
