Question 61

The ratio between the number of passengers travelling by I and II class between the two railway stations is 1 : 50, whereas the ratio of I and II class fares between the same stations is 3 : 1. If on a particular day, Rs 1325 revenue collected from the passengers travelling between these stations, then what was the amount collected from the II class passengers?

Solution

Passenger :

I = x

II = 50x

Fares;

I = 3y

Ii = y

3yx + 50xy = 1325

53xy = 1325

xy = 25

Amount collected from the II class passengers = 50xy = 50 *25 = 1250
