# In which Ratio Mixed the Milk and Water?

Milk and water in two vessels A and B are in ratio 4:3 and 2:3 respectively. In what ratio the liquids in both the vessels should be mixed to obtain a new mixture in vessel C containing half milk and half water?

- 1:1
- 1:3
- 1:2
- 7:5

**Answer: (4) 7: 5
Explanation:-
**Milk in 1 litre mixture of vessel A = 4/7 litre

Milk in 1 litre mixture of vessel B = 2/5 litre

Milk in 1 litre mixture of vessel C = ½ litre

Let be the ratio of water and milk in vessel C = X: Y

mean ratio = ½

(1/2 – 2/5): (4/7 – ½)

= 1/10: 1/14

required ratio = X: Y = 7:5
