This post received KUDOS
R = titles of Robert D = titles of David \(3*(R15)=D+15\) \(D15=R+15\) You solve this and obtain \(R=45\) and \(D=75\), it's not B and here we can see why: b.\(R=60\) so \(3*(6015)=D+15\) \(D=120\), then the second equation doesn't "work"

M = rate of work of men b = rate of work of boys \((4M+6B)*20 days= 1 job\) \((3M+4B)*28 = 1 job\) \(80M+120B=1\) \(84M+112B=1\) so dome math... \(M=\frac{1}{140}\) \(B=\frac{1}{280}\) those are the rate of work (each hour). \(7 boys = 7*\frac{1}{128}=\frac{7}{128}\) each hour To complete one job 1 \(job = time*\frac{7}{280}\) now this time is \(\frac{280}{7}\) hour that is none of your answers If the question were about men \(7 men = 7*\frac{1}{140}=\frac{7}{140}\) To complete one job 1 \(job = time*\frac{7}{140}\) now this time is \(\frac{140}{7}\) = 20 A

IMO C lets put that in equation. No. of students in one row=x No. of rows=y Total students=xy. 1st equation:(x+1)(y2)=xy i.e. xy2x+y2 =xy i.e. 2x+y=2 2nd Equation(x1)(y+3)=xy i.e. xy+3xy3 =xy i.e. 3xy=3 adding 1st and second equation we get x=5 putting x=5 in any of the equation we get y=12 so total number of Students should be xy = 5*12 = 60 R u sure OA is D?

a.120 b.90 c.60 d.30 e.cant find Think of the students standing in a matrix of rows and columns. There are r rows and c columns. So there are a total of rc students. Algebra approach: Now if there is 1 student extra in each row i.e. there is one column extra, no of rows will be r2 rows. If there is 1 student less in each row, i.e. there is one column less, no of rows will be r+3 rows. (r  2)(c + 1) = rc (r + 3)(c  1) = rc r  2c = 2 r + 3c = 3 c = 5 r = 12 Total number of students = 5*12 = 60
