A certain electrolyte solution contains 1 gram of salt for every 8 grams of sugar and every 200 grams of water. If the sugar to water ratio is halved, the salt to sugar ratio is tripled, and the resulting solution contains 5 grams of salt, how many grams of water does the resulting solution contain?

Sugar to water ratio is halved :8/200/2 = 8/400
And Salt to Sugar ratio is tripled : 3* 1/8 = 3/8

Now it is given that we need to consider 5 grms of sugar instead of 1 gram. hence the new ratio would be:

For 1 gram ratio of sal to sugar 3/8 so for 5 grams it is:

5 * 8/3 = 40/3

and if sugar ratio is 40/3, than the new ratio of water is:

40/3 * 400 = 666 2/3.
