Q:

A) 111:108 | B) 11:9 |

C) 103:72 | D) None |

Answer: B) 11:9

Explanation:

Explanation:

From the given data,

The part of honey in the first mixture = 1/4

The part of honey in the second mixture = 3/4

Let the part of honey in the third mixture = x

Then,

1/4 3/4

x

(3/4)-x x-(1/4)

Given from mixtures 1 & 2 the ratio of mixture taken out is 2 : 3

=> $\frac{{\displaystyle \frac{3}{4}-x}}{x-{\displaystyle \frac{1}{4}}}=\frac{2}{3}$

=> Solving we get the part of honey in the third mixture as 11/20

=> the remaining part of the mixture is water = 9/20

Hence, the ratio of the mixture of honey and water in the third mixture is **11 : 9** .
