A lending library had a fixed charge for the first three days and an additional charge for each day thereafter. Saritha paid Rs 27 for a book kept for seven days while Susy paid Rs 21 for the book she kept for five days. Find the fixed charge and the charge for each extra day.

Answer:

Let the fixed charge for first three days and each day charge thereafter be Rs x and Rs y respectively. 

According to the question,

Subtracting equation (2) from equation (1), we obtain:

2y = 6

y = 3

Substituting the value of y in equation (1), we obtain:

x + 12 = 27

x = 15

Hence, the fixed charge is Rs 15 and the charge per day is Rs 3.
