# The mass of dried apples is 16% of the mass of fresh apples. How many fresh apples should you take

The mass of dried apples is 16% of the mass of fresh apples. How many fresh apples should you take to make 4 tons of dried apples? How many dried apples will be obtained from 4.5 tons of fresh apples.

If 4 tons of dried apples is 16% of the mass of fresh apples, then we denote the mass of fresh apples as x and compose the ratio:
4 t – 16%
x t – 100%
x = 100 * 4/16 = 25 (t) – you need to take fresh apples.
Let’s make a similar ratio for the second question:
4.5 t – 100%
x t – 16%
x = 16 * 4.5 / 100 = 0.72 (t) – you get dried apples.
Answer: you need to take 25 tons of fresh apples to get 4 tons of dried apples; of dried apples, you get 0.72 tons from 4.5 tons of fresh apples.
