# Find amount to be added to achieve target ratio in a given mixture

You are given a container of X liters containing a mixture of wine and water. The mixture contains W% of water in it. How much liters of water must be added to increase the ratio of water to Y%?

Input contains 3 integers X, W and Y respectively.

The output should be in float format up to 2 decimal points.

**Examples:**

Input : X = 125, W = 20, Y = 25

Output : 8.33 liters

20% of 125 is 25. If we add 8.33 liters, we get 33.33 which is 25% of 133.33.Input : X = 100, W = 50, Y = 60

Output : 25

Let the amount of water to be added be A liters.

So, the new amount of mixture = (X + A) liters

And the amount of water in the mixture = (old amount + A) = ((W % of X ) + A )

Also, the amount of water in the mixture = new percentage of water in new mixture = Y % of (X + A)

Now, we can write the expression as

———————————

Y % of ( X + A) = W % of X + A

———————————-

Since, both denote the amount of water.

On simplifying this expression, we will get

A = [X * (Y – W)] / [100 – Y]Illustration :

X = 125, W = 20% and Y = 25%;So, for the given question, the amount of water to be added = (125 * (25 – 20)) / (100 – 25) = 8.33 liters

Below is the implementation of above approach:
