 Q 1: Some number added to 11 gives 20.x + 20 = 11x = 11 + 2011x = 20x + 11 = 20 Q 2: Some number added to 15 gives 20.x + 15 = 20x = 15 + 20x + 20 = 1515x = 20 Q 3: Some number added to 20 gives 11.x = 20 + 11x + 20 = 1120x = 11x + 11 = 20 Q 4: Some number increased by 35 gives 47.x + 47 = 3535x = 47x = 35 + 47x + 35 = 47 Q 5: Some number decreased by 50 gives 35.x = 35 - 50x + 35 = 50x + 50 = 35x - 50 = 35 Q 6: 50 reduced by some number gives 45.45 - x = 50x - 50 = 4550 - x = 45x = 50 - 45 Q 7: 75 reduced by some number gives 37.x - 75 = 3775 - x = 37x = 75 - 3737 - x = 75 Q 8: 7 times a number gives 49.x + 7 = 497x = 49x = 49*77/x = 49 Question 9: This question is available to subscribers only!
