Given:

A total mixture of Wine and water = 140 litres

The ratio of Wine and water = 4 ∶ 3

Calculation:

Let the quantity of the Wine and water be 4x and 3x respectively.

In the mixture of 140 litre

Wine = (4x/7x) × 140 = 80 liter

Water = (3x/7x) × 140 = 60 liter

According to question,

New ratio of Wine and water = (80 + 5) ∶ (60 + 30) = 85 ∶ 90

**∴ The new ratio of Wine and water is 17 ∶ 18**

We need to take care whether it is asked to find out the ratio of water and Wine or Wine and water.
