∴ a = 31

New average = 9a/9 = a= 31

∑boys = 24b

∑ boys – 36 + 30 = 23.5b

24b – 6 = 23.5b

Or 0.5b = 6

Or, b = 12

Let CP = 100

∴ SP = 150

Now, SP = 75 & CP = 200

So, Loss = 125

Loss% = 125/200 × 100 = 62.5%

105 = 0.7CP

Or, CP = 150

So, SP =1.3CP = 1.3 × 150

= 130 + 65

= Rs 195 Milk = 0.4 × 120

= 48ℓ

Water = 72 ℓ

Quantity of water remaining same

∴ milk = 72ℓ

So, quantity to be added = 72 – 48 = 24 ℓ Let distance be 1200 km

∴ 400 km at 40 km/hr

300 km at 25 km/hr

& 500 km at 50 km/hr
