A sample of milk contains 5% water. What quantity of pure milk should be added to 10 litres of milk..

Answer / bigdummy

10L * .05 = .5L water

(.5L water) = (.05)(10L total)
(.5L water) = (.02)(x L total)
x = .5L/.02 = 25L total

But we're looking for how much milk we have to add, so
25L total - 10L original = 15L pure milk

A sample of milk contains 5% water. What quantity of pure milk should be added to 10 litres of milk..

Answer / arpita saha

first case : in 10 lit
water content=(50/100)=.5 lit

second case
water content = (2% of x lit)

as the water content is same in both cases
thus
x=.5/.02
=> x= 25 lit

so,milk added=(25-10)=15 lit

A sample of milk contains 5% water. What quantity of pure milk should be added to 10 litres of milk..

Answer / naeem ahmad

Since 95% is milk in mixture.

So 95% of 10 + X = 98% of (10 + X)

9.5 + X = 9.8 + 0.98X

So X = 15 liters

Answer is C.

A sample of milk contains 5% water. What quantity of pure milk should be added to 10 litres of milk..

Answer / nazeera jaffar

Initially 5% is the portion of the water in the mixture,95% is the portion of the milk in the mixture. So quantity of water(in litres) in the 10 L=0.05*10L=>0.5L. And also quantity of milk in 10 L mixture=0.95*10L=9.5L. Let X be the quantity of pure milk to be added to the mixture to make water content to 2%. Therefore, 0.5/(9.5+X)=0.2/9.8 9.8*0.5=0.2(9.5+X) 4.9=1.9+0.2X 0.2X=3.0 x=15 So 15 Liters of pure milk should be added to the mixture to reduce the water content to 2%

A sample of milk contains 5% water. What quantity of pure milk should be added to 10 litres of milk..

Answer / deepak pandit

Water content : 5% of 10 ltr.
5/100 * 10 = 0.5 ltr
Now
0.5 ltr = 5% in 10 ltr
0.5 ltr = 2% in (10+x) ltr
As water content remains same after adding pure milk. So, equating both above equations

5/100 * 10 = 2/100 * (10+x)
50 = 20 + 2x
x = 15 ltr.

Mr. Beans visited a magic shop and bought some magical marbles of different colours along with other magical items. While returning home whenever he saw a coloured light, he took out marbles of similar colours and counted them. So he counted the pink coloured marbles and found that he has bought 25 of them. Then he counted 14 green marbles and then 21 yellow marbles. He later counted 30 purple coloured marbles with him. But when he reached a crossing, he looked at a red light and started counting red marbles and found that he had bought 23 Red marbles. As soon as he finished counting, it started raining heavily and by the time he reached home he was drenched.
