Stmt I

f(2) = 100

a*2 = 100

a = 50

We can find out f(1)

Suff

Stmt II

f(3) = -1000

a*3 = -1000

a = -1000/3

We can find out f(1)

Suff

My solution: y takes 2t days to complete 2w of work x takes 2(t+2) days to complete 2w.. x+y takes 24/5 days to complete 2w work. and while i created the equation i assumed 2w as 1 unit. so equation will be: 1/2t + 1/(2(t+2)) = 5/24 by solving this i get t = 4, so it takes 6 days for x to produce 2...

I am getting 12 days. did you calculate it for W products of 2W?

y = rate of work for Y and x = rate of work for X

y = W/t

x = W/t+2

x+y = 5W/12

5W/12 = W/t + W/t+2

5/12 = 1/t + 1/t+2

t = 4

y = W/4

x = W/6

Now to produce 2W products, x = 2W/(W/6) = 12 days

Let number of already existing houses = 100

New established = 300

60% of already existing houses = 60

76% of new established houses = 76*3 = 228

total house sold = 228+60 = 288

Percentage = (288/400 ) * 100 = 72%

let y be the total number of students accepted

80% of y = x

y = x *100/80

y = 1.25 x

so college need to accept 1.25 times the number of seats available.

**When you need to convert Km/hr into m/s multiply it by 5/18**

eg: 36 km/hr = 36 *5/18 = 10 mps

**When you need to convert m/s to km/hr multiply it by**

*18/5*eg: 20 m/s = 20 * 18/5 = 72 km/hr
