# 150 has been divided into two parts such that twice the first part is equal to the second part. Find the parts

**Solution:**

Let the first part be x

Then the second part be (150 - x)

The linear equation we get is

2x = (150 - x)

2x + x = 150

3x = 150

x = 150/3

x = 50

Hence, 150 - x = 100

Thus, the two parts are 50 and 100.

**✦ Try This:** 100 has been divided into two parts such that thrice the first part is equal to the second part. Find the parts.

Let the first part be x

Then the second part be (100 - x)

A/Q

3x = (100 - x)

3x + x = 100

4x = 100

x = 100/4

x = 25

Hence, 100 - x = 75

Thus, the two parts are 25 and 75.
