Q.  Fresh fruit contains 68 % water and dry fruit contains 20 % water. How much dry fruit can be obtained from 100 kg of fresh fruits?

a. 32 kg
b. 40 kg
c. 52 kg
d. 80 kg


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Quantity of water in 100kg of fresh fruits =(68/100 × 100)kg

Quantity of pulp in it = (100 – 68)kg = 32 kg

Let the dry fruit be x kg

Water in it = (20/100 × x)kg = x/5 kg

Quantity of pulp in it = (x – x/5)kg = 4x/5 kg

Therefore, 4x/5 = 32 => x = 160/4 = 40 kg
