# Solve the following riddle:

I am a number,

Tell my identity!

Take me seven times over

And add a fifty!

To reach a triple century

You still need forty!

**Solution:**

We use the basic concepts of simple linear equations to solve the problem.

We will use the given information to make an equation with an unknown number as a variable.

Let's solve the equation to get the value of the number.

Let the number be x.

We know that 1 century = 100

Thus, triple century = 3 × 100 = 300

According to question,

7x + 50 + 40 = 300

7x = 300 − 90

7x = 210

x = 210/7

x = 30

Therefore, the number is 30.
