A restaurant prepares 22 litres of a mixture that contains 25% of orange essence and the remaining quantity as water. If 3 litres of water is mixed in this mixture, what will be the percentage of orange essence in the new mixture? A) 34% b) 4% c) 12% d)22%

22 litres mixture. 25% is orange essence and the remaining quantity is water.

Therefore orange essence in 22 litres of mixture = 25% of 22 = (¼) * 22 = 5.5 litres.

3 litres of water is added to the mixture. Therefore total mixture = 22 + 3 = 25 litres.

Therefore the percentage of orange essence in the new mixture

= ( (5.5 litres) / 25 litres) * 100

= 5.5 * 4 = 22%

Hence Option (d) is the right answer.
