Question

Nick had 2 identical containers. One container was completely filled with water. The other container was 5/9 filled with syrup. He used some water and some syrup to make a drink. He had the same amount of water and syrup left. he used 2/5 L more water than syrup. How much syrup did he have at first? Giver your answer as a fraction in its simplest form.

Please assist.

Answer

amount of water at first : 9 units
amount of water used : 1p
amount of syrup at first : 5 units
amount of syrup used : 1p + 2/5

9 units – 1p = 5 units – (1p + 2/5)
1 unit = (2/5)/(9 – 5) = 1/10
5 units = 5/10 = 1/2

Ans : 1/2 l.
