Now add some 70 Litre water to the above mixture. What is the percentage of water in the mixture? --- Assume the 1000 litres is x% milk. Then it is (100-x)% water Total water is [(100-x)/100]*1000 = 10(100-x) = 1000-10x litres -------------------------------- Total liquid after adding 70 litres of water is 1070 litres. ----- % of water in the final amount = (1000-10x)/1070 = (100-x)/107 =========================== Cheers, Stan H.
