Question 12 |

In certain city the Taxi charges comprise of a fixed charge and the charge of the distance travelled. A person paid ` 156 for a journey of 16 km and another person paid ` 204 for the journey of 24 km. The amount paid by a passenger who has travelled 30 km is

236 | |

240 | |

248 | |

256 |

Question 12 Explanation:

Fixed charge = ‘x’ Say

Variable charge = Rs y per km

⇒ x + 16y = 156 → (1)

x + 24y = 204 → (2)

By solving (1) & (2),

x = 60, y = 6

⇒ Cost for travelling distance of 30 km = 60 + 3y

= 60 + 3(6)

= Rs 240

Variable charge = Rs y per km

⇒ x + 16y = 156 → (1)

x + 24y = 204 → (2)

By solving (1) & (2),

x = 60, y = 6

⇒ Cost for travelling distance of 30 km = 60 + 3y

= 60 + 3(6)

= Rs 240
