Given Soda has w:1 ratio of Water to Syrup

Soda is made using m litres of Syrup. THis means m*w litres of water. Therefore total Soda made in litres = w*m+m = m(1+w)

Selling price of soda per litre = j dollars
Selling price of m(1+w) litres of soda = j*m(1+w) dollars

Cost of syrup per litre = k dollars
Cost of m litres of syrup used = km dollars

Gross Profit = Selling price of Soda - Cost price of Syrup = jm(1+w) - km... (Ans E or 5)
