# In a test Abha gets twice the marks as that of Palak. Two times Abha's marks and three times Palak's marks make 280

(a) If Palak gets x marks, Abha gets _____ marks

(b) The equation formed is _____

(c) The solution of the equation is _____

(d) Marks obtained by Abha are _____

**Solution:**

Let Palak gets x marks

Then Abha gets 2x marks

A/Q,

2(2x) + 3(x) = 280

4x + 3x = 280

7x = 280

x = 280/7

x = 40

Hence 2x = 80

Thus,

(a) If Palak gets x marks, Abha gets 2x marks.

(b) The equation formed is 4x + 3x = 280.

(c) The solution of the equation is 40.

(d) Marks obtained by Abha are 80.

**✦ Try This:** In a test Asha gets twice the marks as that of Payal. Two times Asha's marks and three times Payal's marks make 315. (a) If Payal gets x marks, Asha gets _____ marks, (b) The equation formed is _____, (c) The solution of the equation is _____, (d) Marks obtained by Asha are _____.

Let Payal gets x marks

Then Asha gets 3x marks

A/Q,

2(3x) + 3(x) = 315

6x + 3x = 315

9x = 315

x = 315/9

x = 35

Hence 3x = 105

Thus,

(a) If Palak gets x marks, Asha gets 3x marks.

(b) The equation formed is 6x + 3x = 315.

(c) The solution of the equation is 35.

(d) Marks obtained by Asha are 105.
