Mixture is an important topic in the Quantitative Aptitude syllabus of many banking/government/regulatory agencies exams like SEBI Grade A, IFSCA Grade A, PFRDA Grade A, RBI Grade B, RBI Assistant, SBI PO, SBI Clerk, IBPS PO, IBPS SO, IBPS Clerk, and many more.
In Quant, a mixture is a combination of two or more substances or quantities with different characteristics. Mixture problems are a type of word problem in which two or more different things are combined to form a new mixture, and the goal is to determine some property of the resulting mixture.
For example, suppose you have two types of liquids, one with concentration x and the other with concentration y. To create a new mixture with a desired concentration z, you need to determine the amounts of each liquid to be mixed. This is a typical mixture problem.
Mixture problems can involve a variety of mathematical concepts, such as ratios, proportions, and algebraic equations. Therefore, solving mixture problems can help develop problem-solving skills and mathematical intuition, which are valuable in many professions.
