Q. 70

Seven times a number is 12 less than thirteen times the same number. Find the number.

Answer :

Let the number be x.


Then, seven times of this number = 7x and thirteen times of this number = 13x


According to the question,


13x – 7x = 12


6x = 12


x = 2 [dividing both sides by 6]


Hence, the number is 2.
