This is a Gmat prep question. I dont know how to attach wrong answers in gmat prep to this forum. Please help \(\frac{concentrate}{juice}=\frac{1}{4}\), as 1 part of concentrate is to be mixed with 3 parts of water to get 4 parts of juice; 200 6ounce of orange juice = 100 12ounce of orange juice; As 1/4 th 100 12ounce of orange juice must be concentrate > 100*1/4=25 12ounce of cans of concentrate are required. Answer: A.

I'm surprised I got this right...here's how I approached this. X can concentrate : 3X can water is given as the ratio 200 cans of 6 oz each = 1200 oz total fluid.
x+3x = 1200 Therefore x=300 oz of orange juice concentrate Now we are asked how many 12 oz cans of concentrate are required. From 300, 12 goes 25 times so the answer is A

The total volume is > 200 * 6 = 1200 ounces 1 ounce can results in 4 ounces of juice So 1 12 ounce can extract can result in 4 * 12 = 48 ounces of juice Hence 1200 ounces can be obtained from 1200/48 cans = 25 cans So the answer is (A).

200 6oz cans = 100 12oz cans
ratio of cans to make orange > 1(orange):3(water):4(total)
For 100 servings we would need to multiply the total number of cans by 25. Therefore, 1x25 cans of orange would be needed for 200 6oz servings of OJ
Answer: A

1c+3w = 4 cans of juice.
For 200 6oz juice you need 150 part of water and 50 cans of 6oz concentrate.
50/2= 25 12oz cans of concentrate.

A. 25 B. 34 C. 50 D. 67 E. 100 concentrate : water = 1:3 To produce 200 6 ounce serving , we need 100 12 ounce cans. Now , # of concentrate can in 100 = 1/4 * 100 = 25

Answer: A. Hi Bunuel, How do we know that the can is of 12ounce? Because its given in the last sentence that how many 12ounce cans are required. But its not given that the can of concentrate in the mixture: (1 can of concentrate + 3cans of water) is of 12ounce. Please clarify.

But what the first sentence is saying is that 1 part of concentrate is to be mixed with 3 parts (thrice of that of concentrate) of water to make an orange juice. So, whatever amount of concentrate you take, you'll have to mix it with 3 times as much water. Does this make sense?

Yes Bunuel, even if we consider the can a concentrate of 4ounce we will get the same answer.

i know this sounds dumb..but i gave the test today and i read this problem as 2006ounce serving. There is a space between 200 and 6 but i thought may be it was typo The problem is damn simple but when you confuse 200 6ounces with 2006 ounces,...duhhh!!!

Well, I got confused with all the different volumes mentioned.
What I did was this:
C/W = 1/3
200*6=1200 ounces
We are asked about 12 ounces of concentrate. So, using the ratio C/W = 1/3, this is C/W = 12/36. Then: 12x+36x=1200 48x=1200 x=25.
Of course, I still got confused, because I wanted to multiply this 25 by 12. But, since no such answer existed, I chose 25.
Could you explain a bit if my process makes sense and which is the part I am missing?
Thank you!

Total juice prepared = 200*6 = 1200 Orange juice concentrate required\(= \frac{25}{100} * 1200 = 300\) 12 ounce jars required\(= \frac{300}{12} = 25\) Answer = A

Thank you! You should not multiply it by 12. Because the question asks about the number of cans not amount by ounces.
