@Dhiraj singh chauhan sir, I want you to look at the question no. 5 in your course. Here the numbers 16 (Milk's ratio) and 81 (mixture's ratio) both are square numbers, hence we can do it by root over. but what if there is a question which is not a perfect square number ( eg 17 in place of 16)? Please help me out with this.
A container contained 80 lit milk. From this Container 8 Lit miLk replaced by water. Further repeated Two times. How Much milk is in container? After solving it as u said i got 729/1000 What next?

It is getting decreased... At end of 1st step, Milk:Mixture is 3:4... 2nd step, Milk:Mix is 9:16... 3rd step, 27:64... 3:4 < 9:16 < 27:64
