  3. hello priyanka,
    in question no. 6,we have equal patrol for two cases-when you go with-
    (1) 50 kmph (2) 75 kmph

    they give distance for 50 kmph speed i.e. 195 km
    here they give a hint that needs 30% more fuel at the speed of 75 kmph.

    case 1. 50 kmph - x patrol for =195
    case 2. 75 kmph- x1.3 patrol for =195
    now u can simplify value of x which is same for both case
