# If 3x + 4 : X + 5 is the Duplicate Ratio of 8 : 15, Find X. - ICSE Class 10 - Mathematics

#### Question

If 3x + 4 : x + 5 is the duplicate ratio of 8 : 15, find x.

#### Solution

(3x + 4)/(x + 5) = (8)^2/(15)^2

⇒ (3x + 4)/(x + 5) -64 /( 225)
⇒  675x + 900 = 64x + 320
⇒  611x = -580

⇒  x = - (580)/(611)
