**Q4. Expenses of a hostel are partly constant and partly vary with number of students. When there are 20 students, total expenses are Rs. 2000. When there are 50 students, total expenses are Rs. 3500. Find the total expenses when there are 70 students in the hostel.**

4000

5000

3500

5500

4500

Solution:

Suppose Expenses = E

E = A + Bn

Where, A, B are constant and n is the number of students.

Now,

2000 = A + 20B

3500 = A + 50B

Solving these equations,

30B = 1500 ⇔ B = 50

Hence,

A = 1000.

Now total expenses, when there are 70 students.

E = 1000 + 70 × 50 = 4500

E = A + Bn

Where, A, B are constant and n is the number of students.

Now,

2000 = A + 20B

3500 = A + 50B

Solving these equations,

30B = 1500 ⇔ B = 50

Hence,

A = 1000.

Now total expenses, when there are 70 students.

E = 1000 + 70 × 50 = 4500
