⇒ 5(A+B) + 10(B+C)  + 8 C = 60

5*2 + 10*3 + 8C = 60
8c = 20
C = 20/8 = 5/2 = 2.5

⇒ 60/2.5 = 24

DownStream speed = 6+1.5 = 7.5 kmph
Upstream Speed = 6-1.5 = 4.5 kmph
Time Take in DownStream =22.5/7.5=3
Time Taken in Upstream = 22.5/4.5=5
Total Time = 3+5=8 hours

#### Ques 8.

3t - 40/60 s = 2
-2t + 40/60 s = 4/3

t = 10/3
S = 12
D = 10/3*12 = 40km

#### Ques 9.

A shopkeeper marked his good 20% more than c.p and give 10% discount on it if he by 100 gm on selling as well as on buying then find profit % ?
