Question 59

A mixture contains lemon juice and sugar syrup in equal proportion. If a new mixture is created by adding this mixture and sugar syrup in the ratio 1 : 3, then the ratio of lemon juice and sugar syrup in the new mixture is


Lemon juice : sugar syrup in the mixture is 1:1, i.e. 50% Lemon juice and 50% sugar syrup.

In sugar syrup, 100% is sugar syrup.

These two are mixed in the ratio 1:3.

Lemon juice = $$\ \frac{\ 1\left(50\%\right)}{1+3}$$

Sugar syrup = $$\ \frac{\ 1\left(50\%\right)+3\left(100\%\right)}{1+3}=\frac{350}{4}$$

Required ratio = 50:350 = 1:7
