# Subramaniam and Naidu donate some money in a Relief Fund. The amount paid by Naidu is ₹ 125 more than that of Subramaniam. If the total money paid by them is ₹ 975, find the amount of money donated by Subramaniam

**Solution:**

Let amount of money donated by Subramaniam be ₹ x

Then the amount of money donated by Naidu be ₹ (x + 125)

The required equation is:

x + (x + 125) = 975

2x = 975 - 125

x = 850/2

x = 425

Thus, the amount of money donated by Subramaniam is ₹ 425.

**✦ Try This:** Ali and Ahmad donate some money in a Relief Fund. The amount paid by Ahmad is ₹ 275 more than that of Ali. If the total money paid by them is ₹ 3151, find the amount of money donated by Ali.

Let amount of money donated by Ali be ₹ x

Then the amount of money donated by Ahmad be ₹ (x + 275)

A/Q

x + (x + 275) = 3151

2x = 3151 - 275

x = 2876/2

x = 1438

Thus, the amount of money donated by Ali is ₹ 1438.
