Rs. 8.40

Rs. 4.20

Rs. 4.80

Rs. 2.80

Rs. 3.20

Solution:

Let the price of B per kg be Rs. X. Then, the price of A per kg = Rs. 3X

1kg of C contains 2/7 kg of A and 5/7 kg of B

Price of 1 kg of C = (2/7) × 3X + (5/7) X = (11/7) X

By the given condition, 11X/7

= 5.20 – 0.80

= Rs. 4.40

⇒ X = 4.40 × (7/11) = Rs. 2.80

Hence the price of B per kg = Rs. 2.80.

1kg of C contains 2/7 kg of A and 5/7 kg of B

Price of 1 kg of C = (2/7) × 3X + (5/7) X = (11/7) X

By the given condition, 11X/7

= 5.20 – 0.80

= Rs. 4.40

⇒ X = 4.40 × (7/11) = Rs. 2.80

Hence the price of B per kg = Rs. 2.80.

Solution:

Let total no. of students are (x + y)

Where,

x = No.of boys

y = No.of girls

∴ 71x + 73y = 71.8 (x+ y)

⇒ 8x = 12y

⇒ x : y = 3 : 2

Where,

x = No.of boys

y = No.of girls

∴ 71x + 73y = 71.8 (x+ y)

⇒ 8x = 12y

⇒ x : y = 3 : 2
