Water in vegetables

Tomatoes in the store contain 99% water. After being transported to the shop, they were slightly dried and contained only 98% of water. How many kgs of tomatoes are in the store if there were 300 kg in stock?`

Result

x =  150 kg

Solution:

S=(10.99) 300=3 kg S=(10.98) x  x=S/(10.98)=3/(10.98)=150=150  kg S = (1-0.99) \cdot \ 300 = 3 \ kg \ \\ S = (1-0.98) \cdot \ x \ \\ \ \\ x = S /(1-0.98) = 3 /(1-0.98) = 150 = 150 \ \text { kg }
