2x - y = 30...(1)

If B gives to pencils to A

y - 10 = x + 10

From (1)

2(50) - y = 30

y = 70

Thus, A has 50 pencils and B has 70 pencils.

### Solution 24

6(x-10) = y + 10

6x - y = 70...(2)

Multiplying equation no. (2) By 2.

x = 40

From (1)

40 - 2y = -300

-2y = -340

y = 170

Thus, Rohit has Rs. 40

and Ajay has Rs. 170

### Solution 26

### Solution 27

Let the digit at ten’s place be x

And the digit at unit’s place be y

Required number = 10x + y

When the digits are interchanged,

Reversed number = 10y + x
