**Hi Bankersdaily Aspirant,**

Aspirant,for the past 2 days we have learnt on basics of Mixture and Alligation we had learnt

**Problems based on Profit and Loss,****Problems based on Mixture Containing two or more ingredients,****Problems based on Three Ratio’s,****Problems based on Removing and Adding Some Quantity,**

Today we are going to look into Problems based on Alloys,Finding Number of Persons and Partial Work.Aspirants as you all know IBPS PO,IBPS CLERK, IBPS RRB PO,IBPS RRB CLERK are in our hand and we can crack the exam easier if we know the Strategy.Look into ShortCut Method for all other topics

Aspirants,in Prelims Exam,Mixture and Alligation comes for 1 mark and In Mains Exam,Mixture and Alligation questions is asked for 2 Marks.More over we can solve other Miscellaneous topic by using Mixture and Alligation Method by which we consume only less amount of time and we can increase our Number of Attempts.

**INTRODUCTION TO MIXTURE AND ALLIGATION:**

**#.1.TYPE 1:**

**BASED ON ALLOYS:**

**1.A milk vendor has 2 cans of milk. The first contains 25% water and he rest milk.The second container 50% water.How much milk should he mix from each of the containers so as to get 12 litres of milk such that the ratio of water to milk is 3:5?**

Given that

Milk in 1^{st} Can = **3/4**

Milk in 2^{nd} Can =**1/2**

We want milk in the ratio=**5/8**

(1/2)*12=6litres So, quantity of mixture taken from each can=**6litre**

**2.The milk and water in two vessels A and B are in the ratio 4:3 and 2:3 respectively .In what ratio the liquids in both vessels be mixed to obtain a new mixture in vessel c consisting half milk and half water?**

Mean Value=**(1/2)**

Therefore Milk and Water should be mixed in the Ratio of **7:5**

## #.2 TYPE 2:

## FINDING NUMBER OF PERSONS :

**1.In a zoo there are Rabbits and Pigeons.If heads are counted ,there are 200 and if legs are counted there are 580.How many pigeons are there?**

Total heads Count=200

Total Legs Count=580

Average Leg Count =580/200

= **29/10**

Average leg Count for Rabbit =4,

Average leg Count for Pigeons=2

**9:11**

Thus the number of Pigeons is * 200=**110 pigeons**

**2.The total number of people in the village is 5000.If the male and female increases by 10% and 15% respectively,the population of the village becomes 5600.What is the number of male in the village?**

Total number of people in the village=5000

10% of the village =500 15% of the village=750

Increased number of people=5600-5000=600

=150:100

**=3:2**

**Male in village=3000 ⇒ **(5000***3/5**=**3000**)

## #.3. TYPE 3:

## PARTIAL WORK:

**1.A shopkeeper sells 1000kg of sugar ,part of which he sells at 8% profit and the rest at 18% profit .He gains 14% on the whole. The quantity sold at Rs.18% is?**

4:6

**=2:3**

Therefore the 1000kg sugar is sold in the ratio **400:600**

Sugar sold at the profit of **18%=600kg**
