Solution:-

Let the maximum marks be ‘x’.

Then, according to the question.

(25 % of x) + 30 = (50 % of x) – 20

⇒ x/4 + 30 = x/2 – 20

⇒ (x/4) – (x/2) = – 20 – 30

⇒ (x – 2x)/4 = – 50

⇒ – x/4 = – 50

⇒ – x = – 200

⇒ x = 200

So, the maximum marks are 200.

Minimum passing marks are = x/4 + 30

= 200/4 + 30

= 50 + 30

= 80 marks

Minimum passing marks are 80.
