Drying apples

By drying, apples lose 85% of their weight. How many kgs of dried apples do we get from 820 kilograms of fresh?

Result

x =  123 kg

Solution:

m=820 kg  k=10085100=320=0.15  x=k m=0.15 820=123 kgm=820 \ \text{kg} \ \\ \ \\ k=\dfrac{ 100-85 }{ 100 }=\dfrac{ 3 }{ 20 }=0.15 \ \\ \ \\ x=k \cdot \ m=0.15 \cdot \ 820=123 \ \text{kg}
