# The interest received by Karim is ₹ 30 more than that of Ramesh. If the total interest received by them is ₹ 70, find the interest received by Ramesh

**Solution:**

Let the interest received by Ramesh be ₹ x

Then the interest received by Karim be ₹ (x + 30)

A/Q

x + (x + 30) = 70

2x = 70 - 30

x = 40/2

x = 20

Thus, the interest received by Ramesh is ₹ 20.

**✦ Try This:** The interest received by Kailash is ₹ 50 more than that of Suresh. If the total interest received by them is ₹ 110, find the interest received by Suresh.

Let the interest received by Suresh be ₹ x

Then the interest received by Kailash be ₹ (x + 50)

A/Q

2x = 110 - 50

x = 60/2

x = 30

Thus, the interest received by Suresh is ₹ 30.
