C. 2x – 11.

1. 150
[Explanation: Let the number be x.
Given x/2 + 25 = 100
x/2 = 100 – 25 = 75
x = 75 x 2 = 150]

2. 9
[Explanation: 3x – 7 = 20
3x = 20 +7 = 27
x = 27/3 =9]

3. 7
[Explanation: 3y – 8 = 13
3y = 13 + 8 = 21
y = 21/3 = 7]

4. x + 45

5. 100
[Explanation: Let the number be x.
Give x + 2x = 300
3x = 300
x = 300/3 = 100]

6. 60 years
[Explanation: Let age of son = x years
Aman’s age = 3x
Ten years ago Aman’s age = 3x – 10
Ten years ago Aman’s son’s age = x – 10
Given 3x -10 = 5(x – 10)
3x – 10 = 5x – 50
3x – 5x = -50 + 10
-2x = -40
x = -40/-2 = 20 years
Aman’s age = 3x = 60 years.]

7. 5
[Explanation: 2x -1 = 14 – x
2x +x = 14 +1
3x = 15
x = 15/3 = 5]

8. 0

9. 10
[Explanation: 2x – 5 = 3(x -5)
2x – 5 = 3x – 15
2x – 3x = -15 + 5
-x = -10
x = 10]

10. 2x – 11.
