Rules of alligation
Represented as :
Suppose a container contains x of liquid from which y units are taken out and replaced by water.After n operations,the quantity of pure liquid=
Points to Remember While Using the Rule of Alligation
– The three values alligated should always represent the same variable and should have same units.
– Alligation of 3 values of cost gives the ratio in terms of number and vice-versa.
– If two values of cost price and selling price of the mixture are given, then in such cases first calculate the cost price of the mixture and then allegate the 3 values of cost price.
– A and B represent concentration if the numerical is based on mixing of solutions.
