The share of A when Rs 25 are divided between
Question:

The share of A when Rs 25 are divided between A and B, so that A gets Rs 8 more than B, is——–.

Solution:

$₹ 16.5$

Let, $B$ ‘s share be $₹ x$. Then, $A$ ‘s share $=₹(x+8)$

According to the question,

$x+x+8=25$

$\Rightarrow \quad 2 x+8=25$

$\Rightarrow \quad 2 x=25-8$   [transposing 8 to RHS]

$\Rightarrow \quad 2 x=17$

$\Rightarrow$ $\frac{2 x}{2}=\frac{17}{2}$ [dividing both sides by 2 ]

$\Rightarrow$ $x=8.5$

Hence, $A$ ‘s share $=8.5+8=₹ 16.5$
