Alligation or Mixture problems
In what proportion must tea at Rs. 62 per kg be mixed with tea at Rs. 72 per kg in order to obtain the mixture worth Rs. 65 per kg?
Using Alligation rule, (Quantity of cheaper tea) / (Quantity of dearer tea) = (d - m) / (m - c) = 7/3Therefore, they must be mixed in the ratio of 7 : 3.
