Question 2: A person travels at speed of X m/s for one minute, still he finds himself 49 m away from a point. Given that the destination is 87 m away from that point. Find the distance between the starting point and the destination?
Solution:
Distance travelled in 1 minute = (X) × (60)
= 60X.
Distance between the starting point and the destination
= 60X+49+87
= 60X +136 m.

Question 3: The income of a man A is twice the income of B. The income B is thrice that of C. Given that the sum of income of A, B and C is Rs.72000, find the income of A?
Solution:
Let the income of C =Rs. X
Income of B = Rs. 3X
Income of A = Rs. 6X
Sum of the income 10X=72000 =Rs.7200
Income of A = Rs. 432000

Question 4: Three friends A, Band C went out and participated in a competition where you have to climb up the steps in the given time but none of them completed the race in the given time. If A is on step number X and B is 8 steps behind A, C is 4 steps above A. Given that A is 13 steps from the destination, find the total number of steps in the race and the step number on which B and C are standing respectively?
Solution:
Given A is 13 steps away from destination
Total number of steps in destination = X+13
Step number of B = X - 8
Step number of C = X + 4

Question 5: A man in order to train his new employees gives x questions for one hour and in next hour he gives 10 more question compared to what he gave in the first hour. After two hours he finds the number of questions solved is four less than his target which is 88, how many questions were answered in the first hour?
Solution:
Number of questions answered in first hour = x
Number of questions solved in the next hour = x+10
Number of questions solved = 88-4 = 84
Number of questions solved in two hours = x+x+10 = 2x+10
2x +10=84
x = 37
