Data calculated from solving one part can be used in the calculation of the other part.
Quantity of milk added by the milkman = 80 + 60 + 3 × 50 = 290 litres
Quantity of water added by the milkman = 0 + 10 + 50 = 60 litres
∴ Required percentage = (60/290) × 100 = 20.69%
∴ The quantity of water added is 20.69% of quantity of milk added by the milkman
