A vessel is full of a mixture of milk and water, with 9% milk. Nine litres are withdrawn and then replaced with pure water. If the milk is now 6%, how much does the vessel hold?

(A) 18 litres
(B) 27 litres
(C) 36 litres
(D) 40 litres
(E) 47 litres


Let, initial quantity of mixture = x liters
Initial quantity of milk in mixture = (9/100)*x liters

Milk in 9 litres of mixture = (9/100)*9

9 litre mixture gets replaced by pure water i.e. the net quantity of milk reduced in mixture = (9/100)*9 liters

i.e. Milk now = (9/100)*x - (9/100)*9 = (9/100)*(x-9) = (6/100)*x (Given)

i.e. 9x - 81 = 6x
i.e. 3x = 81
i.e. x = 27 liters

Answer: Option B

let total qty be x liters
so milk 9x/100
9 liters is withdrawn so left with 9x/100- (9/100) * 9 which becomes equal to 6x/100
we have
9/100 * ( x-9) = 6x/100
3x-27 = 2x
x= 27 litres

\(\frac{91}{100 }\)—the amount of water in 1 liter mixture.

—>\(( \frac{91}{100})x —(\frac{91}{100})*9 + 9 = (\frac{94}{100})x \)

\(\frac{( 94 —91)}{100} x = \frac{(100 —91)}{100}*9\)

\((\frac{3}{100})x = \frac{81}{100} \)
—> \(x = 27\)

Answer (B)

--------------------------Milk--------------------------Water-----------------------------Total
Before -------------- 0.09 T (Lit)--------------------0.91T------------------------------T Lit

After----------------0.09T-9*0.09 (Lit)-------------0.91T+9---------------------------T


So 0.09T-9*0.09 = 0.06 T => T = 9* 3 = 27 Lit .

let c=vessel capacity
focus on water:
.91c-(9)(.91)+9(1)=.94c→
.03c=.81
c=27 litres

Can this question be solved using teetor totter method ? Could someone please post the answer for that ?

Instead of using milk as a quantity, I used water instead and found that the ratio of water in the (100% solution (pure water)) to the ratio of water in the (91% solution (mixture)) is 1/2 --> 1 part / 2 parts

I am probably doing this all wrong. Need help :(
