In Liquid L1 - 1L = 1000 grams
So, 1000 mL = 1000 grams
1 mL = 1 gram
x mL = x grams
In Liquid L2 - 1L = 800 grams
1000 mL = 800 grams
1mL = 0.8 grams
(500-x) mL = (500-x) x 0.8 grams
Total mass = x + 400 - 0.8x = 480 grams
0.2x = 80 grams
x = 400 grams
Therefore, Liquid 1 has 400 mL and Liquid 2 has 500 - 400 = 100 Ml
Therefore, Percentage of Liquid 1 = x 100 = 80%

The question is "A chemist mixes two liquids 1 and 2. One litre of liquid 1 weighs 1 kg and one litre of liquid 2 weighs 800 gm. If half litre of the mixture weighs 480 gm, then the percentage of liquid 1 in the mixture, in terms of volume, is "
