# What will be the Mixture Ratio of Milk and Water?

In a mixture of 35 liters, the ratio of milk and water 4:1. If a liter of water is added to the mixture, the ratio of milk and water is

- 7: 2
- 2:7
- 1 : 4
- 2 : 3

**Answer: (a) 7:2
Explanation:-**

In a mixture of 35 litres, the ratio of milk and water 4:1

Let the milk in mixture = 4X litres, and water in mixture = X litre

Then, 4X + X = 35

5X = 35

X = 7

Quantity of milk in mixture = 4 x 7 = 28 litres

and quantity of water in mixture = 7 litre

1 litre of water of is added to the mixture

now, the quantity of water in mixture = 7 + 1 = 8 litres

New quantity of mixture = 28 + 8 = 36 litres

New ratio milk and water in mixture = 28/8 = 7:2
