A mixture contains alcohol and water in the ratio 4 : 3. If 5 liters of water is added to the mixture, the ratio becomes 4: 5. Find the quantity of alcohol in the given mixture.
Let the quantity of alcohol and water be 4x litres and 3x litres respectively
4x/(3x+5) = 4/5
20x = 4(3x+5)
8x = 20
x = 2.5
Quantity of alcohol = (4 x 2.5) litres = 10 litres.
The ratio of the number of boys to the number of girls in a school of 640 students, is 5 : 3. If 30 more girls are admitted in the school, then how many more boys should be admitted so that the ratio of boys to that of the girls, becomes 14 : 9.
If the base radius of 2 cylinders are in the ratio 3 : 4 and their heights are in the ratio 4 : 9, then the ratio of their volumes is:
If a : b = 2 : 3 and c : b = 5 : 6, then a : b : c is equal to:
If a : b = 2 : 5, c: b = 3 : 4, then a : b : c is equal to:
Two numbers are in the ratio 5 : 7. If the first number is 20, then the second number will be:
If x is the mean proportional between 12.8 and 64.8 and y is the third proportional to 38.4 and 57.6, then 2x : y is equal to:
