2. In A,B,C are having some marbles with each of them. A has giben

B and C the same number of marbles they already have to each of them.

then, B gave C and A the same no. of marbles they have, then C gave

A and B the same no. of marbles they have. At the

end A,B,and C have equal no. of marbles.

(i) If x,y,z are the marbles initially with A,B,C respectively.

then the no of marbles B have at the end

(a) 2(x-y-z) (b) 4(x-y-z) etc.

actual time. If the car engine fails ofter travelling

45km, the car reaches the destination B 36min late to the actual

time , what is the initial velocity of car and what is the distance between A and B in km

ans) 20 & 130.

4. A person has Rs 100/- in his pocket, he can as 25 pencils or 15books.
