Around 50 kg
51 Percentage will be the correct one.
can any one explain the answer with steps
51 kg be the weight of potato
New weight = 50
I think 51 Kg
It will be 51 Kg.
Originally, out of 100 kg, 2 kg was solid stuff and 98 kg was liquid. After drying, 2 kg of solid stuff remains as it is and liquid stuff is reduced to 2 kg of equivalent liquid. Then, the percentage of water decreases to 50%. So the weight of potato now is 4 kg.
