Arithmetic Aptitude :: Percentage
8. Fresh fruit contains 68% water and dry fruit contains 20% water. How much dry fruit can be obtained from 100 kg
1. Given fresh fruit has 68% water,
=> Remaining 32% will be fruit content.
2. Given Dry fruit has 20% water
=> Remaining 80% is fruit content.
Here assume weight of dry fruit = x kg.
"fruit content in both the fresh fruit and dry fruit is the same"
Fruit % in fresh-fruit = fruit% in dry-fruit
so (32/100) * 100 = (80/100 )* x
=> x = 40 kg.
