In a milk solution of 10 lit, 2 lit of water is added thereby the concentration of milk is reduced by 15%. What is the quantity of milk in the solution?

I tried:

Concentration - Water added - Milk:

100 - 0 - 10 liter

85 - 0 - ?

\(\frac {85\times10}{100} = 8.5\)

But Answer is 9 litres. Please tell how to solve this problem?

Milk_____x_______0_______x
Water___10-x_____2_______12-x
Total_____10______2_______12


So, the initial concentration of milk is \(\frac{x}{10}\). It is \(\frac{15}{100}\) more than the new concentration \(\frac{x}{12}\) => \(\frac{x}{10}\)- \(\frac{15}{100}\) = \(\frac{x}{12}\). Solving this equation x equals 9 liters

Hope this helps!
