Ratio and Proportion Question & Answers
There are two containers, the first one contains 1 litre pure water and the second one contains 1 litre pure milk.Now 5 cups of water from the first container is taken out is mixed well in the second container. Then, 5 cups of this mixture is taken out and is mixed in the first container. Let A denote the proportion of milk in the first container and B denote the proportion of water in the second container then:
|A) A||B) A=B|
|C) A>B||D) can't be determined|
Here the ratio of mixtures( i.e milk , water) doesnot matter. But the important point is that whether the total amount ( either pure or mixture ) being transferred is equal or not.Since the total amount ( i.e 5 cups) being transferred from each one to another , hence A =B.
