3 + 1 + 2 + x = 6 + x

%DF = DF/Total * 100

= x/(6+x) * 100 = 100x/(6 + x) Option D...

(E) \(\frac{x}{100(x+6)}\)


Given, Dried fruit content=x ounces
Mixture content=3+1+2+x=6+x ounces
\(\frac{Dried-fruit-content}{mixture-content}*100=\frac{x}{6+x}*100\)=\(\frac{100x}{x+6}\)

Ans. (D)

In the mixture, each item's weight in ounces
P = 3
C = 1
N = 2
F = x

Dried fruit is what percent of the mix, by weight?

Total ounces: \((P+C+N+F)=(3+1+2+x)=\)
\((x+6)\)
Dried fruit, # of ounces: \(F=x\)

Dried fruit as a percent of mix: \((\frac{Part}{Whole}*100)=(\frac{FruitOz}{TotalOz}*100)\)

\((\frac{x}{x+6}*\frac{100}{1})=\frac{100x}{x+6}\)

Answer D
