In a ship provisions are sufficient for 700 men for 50 days. How long will these be sufficient for if there would have been 200 more men?

Let provision be sufficient for 200 men for x days

As men and days are inversely proportional to each other so,

X/50=700/1000

X=700/1000*50

X=35

Sushil was thrice as old as Snehal 6 years back. Sushil will be time as old as Snehal 6 years hence. How old is Snehal today.

let Snehal's age 6 years back =x

content, sushil's age 6 years back = 3x

(5 / 3)( x + 6 + 6 = (3 x + 6 + 6)

so 5 (x + 12 )= 3(3 X + 12)

so x = 6, Sanaya age = x+ 6

years = 12 years
