#### Question No 5

In three coloured boxes - Red, Green and Blue, 108 balls are placed. There are twice as many balls in the green and red boxes combined as there are in the blue box and twice as many in the blue box as there are in the red box. How many balls are there in the green box ?

Solution!
Let R, G and B represent the number of balls in red, green and blue boxes respectively.
Then,
R + G + B = 108 ...(i),
G + R = 2B ...(ii)
B = 2R ...(iii)
From (ii) and (iii), we have G + R = 2x 2R = 4R or G = 3R.
Putting G = 3R and B = 2R in (i), we get:
R + 3R + 2R = 108; 6R = 108 ;R = 18.
Therefore Number of balls in green box = G = 3R = (3 x 18) = 54.

#### Question No 21

Two bus tickets from city A to B and three tickets from city A to C cost Rs. 77 but three tickets from city A to B and two tickets from city A to C cost Rs. 73. What are the fares for cities B and C from A ?

Solution!
Let Rs. x be the fare of city B from city A and Rs. y be the fare of city C from city A.
Then, 2x + 3y = 77 ...(i) and
3x + 2y = 73 ...(ii)
Multiplying (i) by 3 and (ii) by 2 and subtracting, we get: 5y = 85 or y = 17.
Putting y = 17 in (i), we get: x = 13.

#### Question No 23

Jimmy bought 60 Mangoes and 40 Apples. He found 30% of Mangoes and 10%  of apples were overripe. Find the number of fruit in good condition.

Solution!
Total fruit = 60 + 40 = 100
Overripe  Mangoes = 30% of 60

=4
Total number of overripe fruit= 18+4=22
Therefore Number of fruit in good condition= 100-22= 78
