Hi Everyone,
I believe that every regular and serious member should post a couple of questions daily, focused on prelims.... this will lead to nice quiz en route to the final exams. We still have some days to go, few questions a day will certainly do a world of good to preparations...

here what mistake u are doin according to me is that u are considering the age of the removed older person as 'x' .... but we do not know whether his age is actually 'x' as x is just the average.
for me it should be,
10(x-3)=10x - older + younger
10(x-3)=10x - difference
difference = 30
akhilmisra replied to Official Quant Thread for CAT 2010
let the average age of the original 10 people currently be 'x+3'
so their average age three yrs before would have been 'x'
x = ((x+3)*10 - older + younger) / 10
x = ((x+3)*10 - difference) / 10
difference = 30
pls someone cross check....

forming the equantions,
total weight of n boys = 36n
(36n + 20*30) / (n+20) = (36n - 40*5) / (n-5)
420n - 3000 = 520n - 4000
n=10

I feel the eqn 2 that u form i.e. "1.7y = x + 4" her u have added 0.7y to B's gauvas but according to me since they are being given by A so they need to be reduced from the number of gauvas A has currently. Which would give
"x- 0.7y"
so eqn should be
1.7y = x + 4 - 0.7y
P.S. => I h...

to cover 180 km in maximum 8 hrs the speed should be > (180/km/hr
i.e. speed should be greater than 22.5 km/hr
for every compartment the speed is reduced by 10% so we have,
speed after 'n' compartments are connected = 50* (1 - 1/10)^n
therefore by the above condition we have,
50* ...

let A's be ='x' and B's be 'Y'
if A gives B 25% of his gauvas,
x - x/4 =y+ x/4 +2
2x - 4y =8 ..................(1)
if A gives 70% of what B has now i.e. y , B will have 4 more gauvas
4 + x - 7y/10 = y + 7y/10
10x - 24y =-40 .............(2)
solving (1) and (2), we get....
