# A solution of salt and water contains 30% salt, 225 liter water is evaporated and now percentage of salt in solution becomes 60%. find the initial quantity of solution?

A. 750 litre

B. 300 litre

C. 500 litre

D. 450 litre

## Solution(By Examveda Team)

Initial Salt = 30% of X = 0.30X.

Initial Water = 70% of X = 0.70X.

250 liter of water evaporated.

So, Final water = (0.70X - 225).

Now, salt rises to 60% of the mixture, it means as water dried up salt rises.

Now, Total Mixture = (0.70X -225 + 0.30X).

Final salt = 60% of(0.70X - 225 + 0.30X)

As,

**Initial Amount of salt = Final amount of salt**, we have,

0.3X = 60% of(0.70X - 225 + 0.30X)

0.3X = 0.6X - 135.

Or, 0.3X = 135.

Thus, X = 450.

**Initial amount of the mixture was 450 liter.**
