  • A Butler stole wine from a butt of sherry which contained 80% of spirit and he replaced it by wine containing only 32% spirit. Then, the butt was of 48% strength only. How much of butt did he steal?

    1 Answer

    The question implies that butt was of 48% (80-32) strength only. According to the rule of alligation, (80-48)=32 and (48-32)=16, Therefore ratio is 32:16 = 2:1. Clearly, 1/3 of the butt of sherry was left and the butler stole 2/3 of the butt.
