# Milk and water are mixed in vessel A in the ratio of 5:7 and in vessel

| Milk and water are mixed in vessel A in the ratio of 5:7 and in vessel B in the ratio 2:1. Now, a new mixture of 36 litre is made by mixing quantities of vessel A & B such that milk and water ratio in the new mixture becomes 5:4. Find the quantity of vessel A in new mixture.

A. 12 litres

B. 15 litres

C. 18 litres

D. 16 litres

### Right Answer is: D

#### SOLUTION

It’s difficult to proceed this method with fractions, So we will first simplify it

So, LCM (12, 3 and 9) = 36

Hence ratio in which quantities of both vessels are mixed is 4:5

⇒ 9 unit = 36 litres

⇒ 1 unit = 4 litres

⇒ 4 unit = 16 litres
