Official Solution:

If 10 dollars are equivalent to 24 francs and 12 pounds are equivalent to 36 francs, how many pounds is 95 dollars?

A. 58
B. 64
C. 68
D. 76
E. 82


Given:

\(10 \text{ dollars} = 24 \text{ francs}\);

\(12 \text{ pounds} = 36 \text{ francs}\), which means that \(8 \text{ pounds} = 24 \text{ francs}\);

So, \(10 \text{ dollars} = 8 \text{ pounds}\) hence \(95 \text{ dollars} = 8*9.5 \text{ pounds}= 76 \text{ pounds}\).


Answer: D

10D=24F => D=2.4F
12P=36F=>F=1/3P

Substituting => D=2.4(1/3)P
=> D=0.8P

95D=95(0.8p)
=>95D=76P

D.

y pounds= $95
$10=24 francs
36 francs = 12 pounds
Now,
y x 10 x 36 = 95 x 24 x 12
i.e y=76
Hence, Ans is D
