Could u please answer this question. A piece of cloth costs Rs 200.If the cloth was 5m Longer and each metre of cloth costs Rs 2 less.How long is the piece and what is the orginal rate per metre.
Asked by BENIN JOHN | 12th Mar, 2011, 12:00: AM
Let the length of the piece be x metres.
Then, the rate per meter = Rs 200 / x
New length = (x + 5) metres
Since, the cost remains the same, new rate per metre = Rs 200 / (x+5)
Accorading to the given information,
We hope that clarifies your query.
