Question and answer
Can you use alligation for any type of liquid
Alligation is an old and practical method of solving arithmetic problems related to mixtures of ingredients. [ There are two types of alligation: alligation medial, used to find the quantity of a mixture given the quantities of its ingredients, and alligation alternate, used to find the amount of each ingredient needed to make a mixture of a given quantity. Alligation medial is merely a matter
of finding a weighted mean. Alligation alternate is more complicated and involves organizing the ingredients into high and low pairs which are then traded off. ]
