Q. 48

# State whether the

Answer :

let one number be ‘x’

Then other number be (40-x)

Let us suppose (40 – x)>x

According to the question. When each number is increased by 8. Then,

(40-x) + 8 = 3 × (x + 8)

48-x = 3x + 24

-x-3x = 24-48

-4x = -24  So, one number is 6

and other number = (40-6)

= 34

Difference between two numbers = = 28

But in the question given that two differs by 40

28≠40.

Hence, it is not true.
