Answer & Explanation



Let the number of Rs. 5 coins be x, Rs. 2 coins be y and Rs. 1 coins be Z.

x + y + z = 52  ………………….. (1)

5x + 2y + z = 125  …………………… (2)

x  + y = 10 …………..(3) (2) ……….(1)

Gives that 4x + y = 73

x  + y = 37

3x = 36

x = 36/3=12

Number of Rs. 5 coins = 12



Let the age of A, B and C be a, b and c respectively.

a + b = 4/3c,  b = 2/3c

a + b + c = 35 = 4/3c + c = 35

7/3c = 35

C = 15, b = 2/3c = 10.



P = Q+ R+ S

Q = P+ R+ S

R = P+ Q+ S

By adding above all, we get

P+ Q+ R = 2(P+ Q+ R)+ 3S

-(P+ Q+ R) = 3S


P+ Q+ R+ S = 3480

-3S+ S = 3480

hence, S = -1740



Let the number of marbles with Ajay and Vijay initially be A and V. If Vijay gives x marble to Ajay then vijay and Ajay would have V – x and A + x marbles respectively.

V – x = A + x …………………….. (1)

If Ajay gives 2x marble to Vijay then Ajay and Vijay would have A – 2x and V + 2x marbles respectively.

V + 2x –(A-2x) = 30 = V – A + 4x = 30 ……………… (2)

From (1) we have V –  A = 2x

Substituting V – A = 2x in equation (2)

6x = 30 = x = 5.



Total distance travelled = 1800 km

Distance travelled by plane = 600 km

Let distance travelled by bus = x

Distance travelled by train = 3x/5

x + 3x/5+ 600=1800

8x/5=1200=x=750 km



Let the cost of each orange and each banana be a and b respectively.

12a + 18b = 84

If the cost of each orange doubles, it becomes 2a

6(2a) + 16b = 80

12a + 16b = 80

Substracting equation (2) from (1) we get 2b = 4
hence, cost of each banana = 2 Rs.



Let the price of book be y and price of pen be x.

x + 2y = 70

3x + 9y =300

By solving the equations we get x = 10 and y = 30

The difference between the cost of book and pen is 30 – 10 = Rs. 20



Let the present age of the father, mother and daughter be f, m and d respectively.


f + m + d = 105   …………………….. (1)

m + 15 = f + d

Substituting f + d as m + 15 in (1),

we get 2m + 15 = 105

2m = 90 =m = 45 years



Let the cost of each pen, eraser and sharpener b p, e and s respectively.

3p + 4e + 10s = 75

6p + 7e + 20x = 146

Multiplying the first of the above equations by 2 and subtracting the second equation from it,

we get e = 4



Let the number of chocolates with shyam and Ram be S and R respectively. If Shyam gives 5 chocolates to Ram, he would have S – 5 chocolates and Ram would have R + 5 chocolates.

So S – 5 = R + 5

S – R = 10   …………………… (1)

If Ram gives 5 chocolates to Shyam, he would have R – 5 chocolates and Shyam would have S + 5 chocolates.

S + 5 = 2 (R – 5)

2R – S = 15

Adding (1) and (2) we get R = 25.

Number of chocolates with Ram = 25
