Q.  All the water in container A which was filled to its brim was poured into two containers B and C. The quantity of water in container B was 62.5% less than the capacity of container A. If 148 liters was now transferred from C to B, then both the containers would have equal quantities of water. What was the initial quantity of water in container A?

a. 648
b. 888
c. 928
d. 1184


ANSWER: See Answer
 
B has 62.5% or (5/8) of the water in A. Therefore, let the quantity of water in container A(initially) be 8k.

Quantity of water in B = 8k – 5k = 3k.
Quantity of water in container C = 8k – 3k = 5k
Container: A B C
Quantity of water: 8k 3k 5k
It is given that if 148 liters was transferred from container C to container B, then both the containers would have equal quantities of water.
5k – 148 = 3k + 148 => 2k = 296 => k = 148
The initial quantity of water in A = 8k = 8 * 148 = 1184 liters.
