In the original Test Container of 800 milliliters, grape juice is 15%, i.e. 120 milliliters

To make the grape juice % to 20%, let the amount of grape juice added = x milliliters

(120+x)/(800+x) = 0.2

Solving for X gives as x = 50

Answer is C. 50

Initial volume of grape juice in beverage 15% of 800 = 120ML
let X amount be added then
this new volume will represent 20% of final volume
120+x = 20% of (800+x)
solving X =50 ML

let the grape juice added be x
apple juice in initial mixture = 0.85*800
apple juice in final mixture = 0.8(800 +x)
since the apple juice in both the mixture is same, therefore
0.85*800 = 0.8(800+ x)
0.05*800 = 0.8x
or x= 0.05*800/0.8 = 50ml

800 ml, 15% grape juice = 120ml grape & 85% apple = 680.

Now 680 must be 80% of new mixture so find value that 680ml is 80% of. so (680/8)*10 = 850 hence 50 more.

Initially there is 800 x 0.15 = 120 ml of grape juice and thus 680 ml of apples juice. We can let g = the amount of grape juice to be added and create the equation:

(120 + g)/(800 + g) = 1/5

5(120 + g) = 800 + g

600 + 5g = 800 + g

4g = 200

g = 50

Alternate Solution:

To 800 ml of 15% grape juice, we add x ml of 100% grape juice to obtain (800 + x) ml of 20% grape juice. Converting the percentages to decimals, we can create the equation:

800(0.15) + x(1.0) = (800 + x)(0.20)

120 + x = 160 + 0.20x

0.8x = 40

8x = 400

x = 50

Answer: C
