 Trisha and Swathi are the leaders of their group in their engineering college situate in Nasik, Maharashtra.  On completion of the first year exams they decided to go for a latest Hindi movie.  They could not get tickets of the same class.  They could get equal number of Rs. 65 Rs. 95 and Rs. 115 tickets for the movie.  They paid Rs. 4950 for all the tickets.  How many of each did they buy?

Options  :

a) 22





Answer:        d) 18

On first reading of the question some may think that it is not possible to get the answer.  Out of the two variables- cost of ticket and number of tickets—one is known.  Number of tickets only is to be found out.

One way to find out is simply add the cost of three classes of tickets and divide the total amount spent by them.  We can get the number of tickets

65+95+115=Rs. 275

Number of tickets is same in all the classes.  So Rs. 4950/275=18.


Another way is to take the number of tickets as X.


So X=18
