Ley m be the percentage of milk, w be the percentage of water, n is the percentage we must remove.
m = 75
w = 25
n = 1 / 3
The whole 3 equations boil down to this:
Please state the calculation
I agree it is 1 /3 by calculation.
Alligation is a method of solving mixture ques.
What is Allegation?
Got It mate Alligation use allegation 1/3 is correct answer
I guess they want fraction of milk Sorry mate
Okay, I thought you just needed some fraction help but you are asking for a mixture problem. I will try and solve that.
yes mate ;
Did you copy the question exactly?
yeah mate , I have understood that but the answer given is 1/3
That is right. Take 1 part of the milk ( there are 3 ) and replace it with water. You now have 2 parts milk and 2 parts water. It is 50:50 now.
yeah so milk is 3/4 part of it and water is 1/4 part
