A number is as much greater than 27 as it is less than 73. Find the number.

Answer :

Let the number be x. If we subtract 27 from x. i.e. (x – 27) and subtract x from 73 i.e. (73 – x), we get result. Therefore, we get the following equation:


x – 27 = 73 – x


x + x = 73 + 27


2x = 100


[Dividing both sides by 2]


x = 50


Hence, the required by is 50.
