# Celebrating Agebra with my friend

Algebra Level 3

I was in a party with my friend Ashish and we both were holding a glass containing alcohol and water in some ratio. The glass that I was holding contained the ratio as $$4:1$$(alcohol:water). And the glass that Ashish was holding contained ratio as $$9:1$$(Alcohol:water). Now, I poured both of our mixtures in a bigger glass which can hold the mixtures from both the glasses. If the resulting mixture has alcohol and water in the ratio $$x:y$$ where $$x$$ and \y) are co-prime positive integers. Then find the value of $$x+y$$.

It is known that the glasses that we were holding were of same volume. And both of them were filled up to the rim.
