MixtureI have a problem , please help me #2 20130226 05:31:15
Re: MixtureHi johnphoenix; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #4 20130226 05:43:43
Re: MixtureSupposing the mixture was divided into 4 pieces. 3 of those pieces are milk, yes? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #6 20130226 05:48:30
Re: MixtureThat 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. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #7 20130226 05:51:24
Re: Mixtureyeah mate , I have understood that but the answer given is 1/3 #8 20130226 05:55:06
Re: MixtureDid you copy the question exactly? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #10 20130226 06:00:21
Re: MixtureOkay, I thought you just needed some fraction help but you are asking for a mixture problem. I will try and solve that. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #12 20130226 06:05:53
Re: MixtureGot It mate Alligation use allegation 1/3 is correct answer #15 20130226 06:14:50
Re: MixtureI agree it is 1 /3 by calculation. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #17 20130226 06:34:17

Re: MixtureLey 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: Last edited by bobbym (20130226 06:51:57) In mathematics, you don't understand things.
