89% of pure milk is water . 90 % of a sample milk is water . Find the quantity of water mixed with 22 litres of such milk.
22 liters * 0.90 = 19.8 liters of water
converting percent to decimal is always 100% = 1, 90% = 0.9, 32% = 0.32, 2.3% = 0.023, etc.

22 *.89 = 19.6
I doubt Arka is posting the original question in all of its full-worded glory, because the problem at present is really vague
Arka, not to be funny, but pure milk has no water in it by strict definition so what is it you're really asking?
