ANSWERS:

- 2p = 18

P = 18/2 = 9 - 2x + 4 = 12
- x – 2 = 3x – 12

x – 3x = -12 + 2 = -10

-2x = -10

x = -10/-2 = 5 - a) y + 2 = -2

y = -2 – 2 = -4

b) –p/4 = 3

-p = 4 x 3 = 12

p = -12 - Let Anu’s age be y

Anu’s father’s age is 10 + 5y = 45

5y = 45 – 10 = 35

y = 35/5 = 7 - a) 3y = 21

b) ¼ p = 16

c) 4m – 12 = 20 - 5 + 3y = 26

3y = 26 – 5 = 21

y = 21/3 = 7 - 4(x – 2) + 3 = 7

4(x – 2) = 7 – 3 = 4

x – 2 = 1

x = 1 + 2 = 3 - 3p + 5 = 26

3p = 26 – 5 = 21

p = 21/3 = 7 - 6y – 6 = 54

6y = 54 + 6 = 60

y = 60/6 = 10 - Let the number be y

3y + 10 = 40

3y = 40 – 10 = 30

y = 30/3 = 10 - 7x + 3 = 38

7x = 38 -3 = 35

x = 35/7 = 5 - Let number of girls be y.

Given 2 + 3y = 50

3y = 50 – 2 = 48

y = 48/3 = 16 - 3x – 4 = 17

3x = 17 + 4 = 21

x = 21/3 = 7 - Let the number be p.

9 + 3p = 54

3p = 54 – 9 = 45

p = 45/3 = 15
