Glucose in the original solution (%) = 15%
Note - We can not separate glucose with out any extraction process

Thus thus the percentage will remain constant i.e. 15% = 45 *.15 = 6.75

GMAT Club is introducing a new project: The Official Guide for GMAT® Review, 13th Edition - Quantitative Questions Project

Each week we'll be posting several questions from The Official Guide for GMAT® Review, 13th Edition and then after couple of days we'll provide Official Answer (OA) to them along with a slution.

We'll be glad if you participate in development of this project:
1. Please provide your solutions to the questions;
2. Please vote for the best solutions by pressing Kudos button;
3. Please vote for the questions themselves by pressing Kudos button;
4. Please share your views on difficulty level of the questions, so that we have most precise evaluation.

Thank you!

If the concentration is $$15%,$$ it means that for every 100 cubic centimeters of solution we have 15 grams of glucose, or for every 100/20 = 5 cubic centimeter we have 15/20 = 3/4 grams of glucose. Therefore, in $$45 = 9\cdot5$$ cubic centimeters of solution, we have $$9\cdot\frac{3}{4}=\frac{27}{4}=6.75$$ grams of glucose.

its 6.75..

how i do it..

i take its Directly proportion or inverse proportion

Glucose 15 solution 100...

glucose X solution 45 ....

45*15/100=6.75

if it wud be inverse relation between them like solution increase and glucose decrease then we wud do like this

15*100/45

Simple Unitary method :

100cm^3 -------------------------- 15gm
45cm^3 ---------------------------(15/100)*45 = 6.75 (i.e., E)

Nice as usual made by you the right solution I like your approach.

A bit straight should be

$$\frac{15}{100}$$ $$=$$ $$\frac{x}{45}$$ -------> 6.75

E wins

Bunuel, Isnt there a Type of 6.57, when it should be 6.75

i was totally ... and got this wrong...

but simple way is

(E) 6.75

We are given that a glucose solution contains 15 grams of glucose per 100 cubic centimeters of solution. Since we are dealing with a solution, we know that the grams of glucose is proportional to the number of cubic centimeters of solution. Thus, to determine how many grams of glucose would be in the container when we have 45 cubic centimeters of solution, we can set up a proportion.

We can say: “15 grams of glucose is to 100 cubic centimeters of solution as x grams of glucose is to 45 cubic centimeters of solution.” Let’s now set up the proportion and solve for x.

15/100 = x/45

When we cross multiply we obtain:

(15)(45) = 100x

675 = 100x

6.75 = x

There are 6.75 grams of glucose in the solution in the container.

The answer is E.

Hi All,

This question is ultimately about setting up a ratio. We're told that we have 15 grams of glucose in a 100 cubic cm solution. We're asked how much glucose would be in 45 cubic cm of that solution.

15/100 = X/45

3/20 = X/45

20X = 135

X = 6.75

here is mu unique solution of solution 15 grams of glucose per 100 cubic --->
$$\frac{15}{100}$$ --> $$\frac{3}{20}$$

$$\frac{3}{20}$$ *45 = 6.75

is my approach correct?  Non-Human User Joined: 09 Sep 2013
