Table of Contents -Three-Fourth of a Number is 60 More than its One-Third (Problem Solved)
Important Points to Solve the Problem
- Three-fourth of a number is 60 more than its one-third.
- The number can be figure out as:
Let suppose the number is y.
Three-fourth of “y”.
y x 3/4
The resultant is 60 more than its one-third
3y/4 – 60 = y/3 ________ (i)
Value of y can be find out easily from equation (i) by just simplifying it (y = 144).
Number = ?
Number = y
According to the given condition
3y/4 – 60 = y/3
3y – 240 = 4y/3
3(3y – 240) = 4y
9y – 720 = 4y
9y – 4y = 720
5y = 720
y = 720/5
y = 144
Required Number = 144 answer
