Question

Solve the following:

Sachin scored twice as many runs as Rahul. Together, their runs fell two short of a double century. How many runs did each one score?

Solution

Let Rahul’s score be x.

Therefore, Sachin’s score = 2x

Rahul’s score + Sachin’s score = 200 - 2

2x + x = 198

3x = 198

Dividing both sides by 3,

`(3x)/3 = 198/3`

x = 66

Rahul’s score = 66

Sachin’s score = 2 × 66 = 132

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
