TANCET 2008 Quant Question 2 : Framing Equation
Jack has three more cards than Bill. Together they have 47 cards. If x represents the number of cards Bill has, then an equation that can be used to determine the number of cards each one has is
Correct Answer :
- x + 3 = 47
- 2x + 3 = 47
- x - 3 = 47
- 2x - 3 = 47
- 3x + 3 = 47
2x + 3 = 47. Choice (2)
Bill has x cards.
Jack has 3 more cards than Bill. So, Jack has x + 3 cards.
So, together Bill and Jack have x + x + 3 = 2x + 3 cards.
The question states that they have 47 cards between them.
So, 2x + 3 = 47.
