A mixture of 150 liters of wine and water contains 20% water. How much more water should be added so that water becomes 25% of the new mixture?

A. 7 liters
B. 15 liters
C. 10 liters
D. 9 liters

Explanation:

Number of liters of water in150 liters of the mixture = 20% of 150 = 20/100 * 150 = 30 liters.
P liters of water added to the mixture to make water 25% of the new mixture.
Total amount of water becomes (30 + P) and total volume of mixture is (150 + P).
(30 + P) = 25/100 * (150 + P)
120 + 4P = 150 + P => P = 10 liters.
