Question

The bus fare between two cities is increased in the ratio 7: 9. Find the increase in the fare, if the increased fare is Rs 207.

Solution

According to the given information

Increased (new) bus fare = 9/7 x original bus fare

We have

Rs 207 = 9/7 x orignal bus fare

Original bus fare = Rs 207 x 7/9 = Rs 161

∴ Increase in fare = Rs 207 - Rs 161 = Rs 46

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
