Correspondingly, how do you calculate the cost of a mixture?

**The cost** of a unit quantity of the **mixture** is called the mean **price**. (Cheaper quantity) : (Dearer quantity) = (d - m) : (m - c). Suppose a container contains x of liquid from which y units are taken out and replaced by water. units.

Beside above, what is the rule of Alligation? 1. **Alligation**. It is the **rule** that enables us to find the ratio in which two or more ingredients at the given price must be mixed to produce a mixture of a desired price. A process or **rule** for the solution of problems concerning the compounding or mixing of ingredients differing in price or quality.

Keeping this in view, what is difference between mixture and Alligation?

**Mixture**: **Mixing** of two or more than two type of quantities gives us a mixure. Quantities of these elements can be expressed as percentage or ratio. **Alligation**: **Alligation** is a rule which is used to solve the problems related to **mixture** and its ingredient.

How do I find the mean price?

It is easy to **calculate**: add up all the numbers, then divide by how many numbers there are. In other words it is the sum divided by the count.
