2.

There are two examinations rooms A and B. If 10 students are sent from A to B, then the number of students in each room is the same. If 20 candidates are sent from B to A, then the number of students in A is double the number of students in B. The number of students in room A is:

Answer: Option

Explanation:

Let the number of students in rooms A and B be *x* and *y* respectively.

Then, *x* - 10 = *y* + 10 *x* - *y* = 20 .... (i)

and *x* + 20 = 2(*y* - 20) *x* - 2*y* = -60 .... (ii)

Solving (i) and (ii) we get: *x* = 100 , *y* = 80.

The required answer A = 100.

Assume x,y

x-a, y-b

10 students from b-a. So x-b,then y+b

Now doubled

2(y-20) then both equation solved.

x-a, y-b

10 students from b-a. So x-b,then y+b

Now doubled

2(y-20) then both equation solved.

Based on the answer a=100 and b=80. They said that if 20 sent from a to b then.

A will become double of b.

So if 20 sent then a=120 and b=60 i.e. a is double of b.

A will become double of b.

So if 20 sent then a=120 and b=60 i.e. a is double of b.

Can you explain by assuming a = 100?

Take these two cases individually let us look first through options 1st option is 20 so to apply both conditions is not possible so come to 80 so given if 10 people are sent to b then people in both class rooms are same so definetly b will be 60.

So again now apply second condition individually so by sending 20 people 4rm b A is twice that of B so this condition is not satisfied so now take 100 and check then both conditions satisfy and hence ans is 100
