on Thursday was 15% higher than that of Monday, then the temperature in ºC on

Thursday was

Solution:

Let the temperature of Monday be T_{M}

Sum of temperatures of Tuesday and Wednesday = T and

Temperature of Thursday =T_{Th}

Now, T_{m} +T = 41x 3 =123

& T_{th+} T= 43x 3= 129

T_{th} -T_{m=} 6, Also T_{th=} 1.15T_{m}
