When processing flower-nectar into honey bees' extract, a considerable amount of water gets reduced. How much flower-nectar must be processed to yield 1kg of honey, if nectar contains 50% water, and the honey obtained from this nectar contains 15% water?
Flower-nectar contains 50% of non-water part.
In honey this non-water part constitutes 85% (100-15).
Therefore 0.5 X Amount of flower-nectar = 0.85 X Amount of honey = 0.85 X 1 kg
Therefore amount of flower-nectar needed =
