Question 4

# 5 bottles cost as much as 2 bags. The cost of 15 bottles and 4 bags is Rs 2,000. What is the price (in Rs.) of a single bag?

Solution

Let price of a single bag = Rs. $$x$$ and price of a bottle = Rs. $$y$$

5 bottles cost as much as 2 bags => $$5y=2x$$

Multiplying both sides by 3, we get : $$15y=6x$$ ------------(i)

According to ques, => $$4x+15y=2000$$

Substituting value from equation (i), => $$4x+6x=2000$$

=> $$x=\frac{2000}{10}=Rs.$$ $$200$$

=> Ans - (A)
