Solution

The solution of the equation is 22.

Explanation:

Given, the number of prizes = 30

Total prize money = ₹ 52000, 1st and 2nd prizes are worth ₹ 2000 and ₹ 1000, respectively.

From (c), 1000x + 30000 = 52000

⇒ 1000x = 52000 – 30000 = 22000

⇒ x = `22000/1000` = 22

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
