There are two examinations rooms A and B. If 10 students are sent from A to B, then the number of students in each room is the same. If 20 candidates are sent from B to A, then the number of students in A is double the number of students in B. The number of students in room A is:
Let the number of students in rooms A and B be x and y respectively.
The price of 10 chairs is equal to that of 4 tables. The price of 15 chairs and 2 tables together is Rs. 4000. The total price of 12 chairs and 3 tables is:
Let the cost of a chair and that of a table be Rs. x and Rs. y respectively.
If a - b = 3 and a2 + b2 = 29, find the value of ab.
The price of 2 sarees and 4 shirts is Rs. 1600. With the same money one can buy 1 saree and 6 shirts. If one wants to buy 12 shirts, how much shall he have to pay ?
Let the price of a saree and a shirt be Rs. x and Rs. y respectively.
Then, 2x + 4y = 1600 .... (i)
and x + 6y = 1600 .... (ii)
Divide equation (i) by 2, we get the below equation. => x + 2y = 800. --- (iii)
Therefore, y = 200. Now apply value of y in (iii) => x + 2 x 200 = 800 => x + 400 = 800 Therefore x = 400
Solving (i) and (ii) we get x = 400, y = 200.
∴ Cost of 12 shirts = Rs. (12 x 200) = Rs. 2400.
