Question 34

What is the value of ‘a’?

I. Ratio of a and b is 3 : 5, where b is positive.

II. Ratio of 2a and b is 10 12 , where a is positive.


We cannot uniquely determine a value for a using either statement alone.

Using both statements together, we get an inconsistent set of equations. Hence, there is no solution using both statements together.

Thus, the question cannot be answered using both statements together.
