Question 10

Q10) When Ajit travelled 15 km, he found that one-fourth of his journey was still left. What was the full length of the journey?

Solution:

Let the total length of journey = x

Journey travelled = 15 km

Journey still left = \frac{1}{4}ofx

Now, according to question

x-15=\frac{1}{4}ofx

x-15=\frac{x}{4}

x-\frac{x}{4}=15

\frac{4x-x}{4}=15

3x=15\times4

x=\frac{15\times4}{3}=20km

Total length of the journey = 20km
