1. 4. Let x = seniors and y = adults

y = 310 - x

60y + 48x = 18,192

Substitute 310-x for y in second equation and solve for x. Insert that value into the first equation and solve for y. Check by inserting both values into the second equation.

2. 1. new number is 35

Let x is digit in 10th place and y be in unit place of original number. and the original number is 10x+y
iven 10x+y=7(x+y)-3
Thus we get 3x-6y=-3 ......(i)
The reverse of original number is 10y+x
Also given 10y+x=10x+y-18,
that is 9x-9y=18 ......(ii)
solving (i) and (ii)get x=5 and y=3.
That is the original number is 53 and new number is 35

3. 2. Let x be the numerator and y be the denominator.
Given x = y - 3
Also (x + 5)/ (y + 5) = 3/4
Substitute x = y - 3 in the above equation we get (y + 2) / (y + 5) = 3/4
Cross multiply this we get y = 7 and substitute y in first equation gives x = 4
Thus the fraction is 4/7
