Answer :

Let the number of pants purchased by Neha be ‘x’ and no. of skirts purchased be ‘y’.

Twice the number of pants = 2x


From the given condition,


y = 2x – 2 (I)


i.e. number of skirts are 2 less than 2 twice the number of pants.


y = 4x – 4 (II)


i.e. number of skirts are 4 less than four times the number of pants.

Subtracting eq. I from II, we get


2x = 2


x = 1


So number of pants purchased = 1 and number of skirts = 0
