# 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 many liters of water must be added to increase the ratio of water to Y%?

The input includes 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 the 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.

By simplifying this expression, we will getA = [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 the above approach:

## C

`// C program to find amount of water to` `// be added to achieve given target ratio.` `#include <stdio.h>` `float` `findAmount(` `float` `X, ` `float` `W, ` `float` `Y)` `{` ` ` `return` `(X * (Y - W)) / (100 - Y);` `}` `int` `main()` `{` ` ` `float` `X = 100, W = 50, Y = 60;` ` ` `printf` `(` `"Water to be added = %.2f "` `,` ` ` `findAmount(X, W, Y));` ` ` `return` `0;` `} ` |

## Java

`// Java program to find amount of water to` `// be added to achieve given target ratio.` `public` `class` `GFG {` ` ` ` ` `static` `float` `findAmount(` `float` `X, ` `float` `W, ` `float` `Y)` ` ` `{` ` ` `return` `(X * (Y - W)) / (` `100` `- Y);` ` ` `}` ` ` ` ` `// Driver code` ` ` `public` `static` `void` `main(String args[])` ` ` `{` ` ` `float` `X = ` `100` `, W = ` `50` `, Y = ` `60` `;` ` ` `System.out.println(` `"Water to be added = "` `+ findAmount(X, W, Y));` ` ` `}` ` ` `// This code is contributed by ANKITRAI1` `}` |

## Python3

`# Python3 program to find amount` `# of water to be added to achieve` `# given target ratio.` `def` `findAmount(X, W, Y):` ` ` ` ` `return` `(X ` `*` `(Y ` `-` `W) ` `/` `(` `100` `-` `Y))` `X ` `=` `100` `W ` `=` `50` `; Y ` `=` `60` `print` `(` `"Water to be added"` `,` ` ` `findAmount(X, W, Y))` `# This code is contributed` `# by Shrikant13` |

## C#

`// C# program to find amount of water to` `// be added to achieve given target ratio.` `using` `System;` `class` `GFG` `{` `public` `static` `double` `findAmount(` `double` `X,` ` ` `double` `W,` ` ` `double` `Y)` `{` ` ` `return` `(X * (Y - W)) / (100 - Y);` `}` `// Driver code` `public` `static` `void` `Main()` `{` ` ` `double` `X = 100, W = 50, Y = 60;` ` ` `Console.WriteLine(` `"Water to be added = {0}"` `,` ` ` `findAmount(X, W, Y));` `}` `}` `// This code is contributed by Soumik` |

## PHP

`<?php` `// PHP program to find amount of water to` `// be added to achieve given target ratio.` `function` `findAmount(` `$X` `, ` `$W` `, ` `$Y` `)` `{` ` ` `return` `(` `$X` `* (` `$Y` `- ` `$W` `)) / (100 - ` `$Y` `);` `}` `// Driver Code` `$X` `= 100; ` `$W` `= 50; ` `$Y` `= 60;` `echo` `"Water to be added = "` `.` ` ` `findAmount(` `$X` `, ` `$W` `, ` `$Y` `);` `// This code is contributed` `// by Akanksha Rai` `?>` |

## Javascript

`<script>` ` ` `// Javascript program to find amount of water to` ` ` `// be added to achieve given target ratio.` ` ` ` ` `function` `findAmount(X, W, Y)` ` ` `{` ` ` `return` `(X * (Y - W)) / (100 - Y);` ` ` `}` ` ` ` ` `let X = 100, W = 50, Y = 60;` ` ` `document.write(` `"Water to be added = "` `+ findAmount(X, W, Y).toFixed(2));` `</script>` |

**Output:**

Water to be added = 25.00
