I think you meant "alligation method".

all the best

alligation
Alligation should not be mistaken for allegation (http://www.answers.com/topic/allegation).
Alligation is an old and practical method of solving arithmetic (http://www.answers.com/topic/arithmetic) problems related to mixtures of ingredients. There are two types of alligation: alligation medial, used to find the quantity of a mixture given the quantities of its ingredients, and alligation alternate, used to find the amount of each ingredient needed to make a mixture of a given quantity. Alligation medial is merely a matter of finding a weighted mean (http://www.answers.com/topic/weighted-mean). Alligation alternate is more complicated and involves organizing the ingredients into high and low pairs which are then traded off.

Examples

Alligation medial

Suppose you make a "suicide" soft drink combination out of 1/2 Coke, 1/4 Sprite, and 1/4 orange soda. The Coke has 120 grams of sugar per liter, the Sprite has 100 grams of sugar per liter, and the orange soda has 150 grams of sugar per liter. How much sugar does the suicide have? This is an example of alligation medial because you want to find the amount of sugar in the mixture given the amounts of sugar in its ingredients. The solution is just to find the weighted average by composition:
Alligation alternate

Suppose you like 1% milk, but you only have 3% whole milk and ½% low fat milk. How much of each should you mix together to make an 8 ounce cup of 1% milk? This is an example of alligation alternate because you want to find the amount of two ingredients to mix together to form a mixture with a given amount of fat. Since there are only two ingredients, there is only one possible way to form a pair. The difference of 3% from the desired 1%, 2%, is assigned to the low fat milk, and the difference of ½% from the desired 1%, ½%, is assigned alternately to the whole milk. The total amount, 8 ounces, is then divided by the sum http://content.answers.com/main/content/wp/en/math/1/2/0/120b986cdb95704e250d407a69bbb4a1.png to yield 16/5, and the amounts of the two ingredients are
