The total age of a mother and her daughter is 60 years. The difference between their ages is 30 years. Find out the age of the mother.

Solution
Suppose. daughter's age is x years.
Therefore. mother's age will be x+ 30 years .
x+ x+ 30 = 60
⇒2x = 60  30
∴ x=^{30}⁄_{2}=15
The age of mother = x + 30
= 15 + 30 = 45 years

40 + 7^{2} = 89
89 + 9^{2} = 170
A man ate 100 grapes in 5 days Each day, he ate 6 more grapes than those he ate on the earlier day. How many grapes did he eat on the first day?

Solution
Let number of grapes eaten on the first day be x.
∴ x+x+6+x+12+x+18+x+24 = 100
⇒5x + 60 = 100
⇒5x = 100  60 = 40
\(\Rightarrow x=\frac{40}{5}=8\)
