  1. mj:pj (mango juice : pineapple juice) L=liters
    8:56-8 (as 8L of pj taken out and 8L of mj added )
    8:48 = 1:6 (1 part of mj 6 part of pj)
    when 8L taken out of the new mixture this 8L will contain
    mj:pj = 8*(1/7):8*(6/7)= 8/7:48/7
    so 8L of this taken out from original 8-8/7:48-48/7
    then 8L of mj added so 8-8/7+8:48-48/7 =104:288= 13:36
