A jar contains a mixture of orange juice and water in the ratio of 4:1. 75 litres of the mixture was taken out and 25 litres of water was added to it. If the water was 40% in the resultant mixture, what was the initial quantity of the mixture in the jar?

Orange water 4 x x Total = 5 x 75 litre of mixture taken out Orange = (4x)/5 x 75 = 60 Orange in mixture = 4x – 60 Water in mixture = x/5 x 75 = 15 Water = (x – 15) + 25 = x + 10 According to the question = (x + 10)/(4x - 60) = 40/60 6 x + 60 = 16 x – 240 10x = 300 x = 30 Initial quantity of mixture = 4 x + x = 5x Initial quantity of mixture = 5 (30) = 150 litres
