    Given :

    • The sum of two numbers is 1600. If 12 %of one of the number is equal to 20% of the other.

    ㅤㅤ

    To find :

    • What are the numbers?

    ㅤㅤ

    Concept :

    • Let us assume, “x” and “y” as first and second numbers.

    ㅤㅤ

    • Here, we use “x” and “y” as a variables instead of using “First number, Second number” in every equation.

    ㅤㅤ

    • Using the variables make easier to understand the equation.

    ㅤㅤ

    • We learn about variables in the chapter “Linear equations and variables“.

    ㅤㅤ

    • Remember that, 12℅ in decimal form is equal to 0.12 and 20℅ in decimal form is equal to 0.20.

    ㅤㅤ

    Calculations :

    → x + y = 1600

    → 0.12/0.20

    → 0.6

    ㅤㅤ

    → x = 1600/0.6

    → x = 1000

    ㅤㅤ

    → y = 1600 – 1000

    → y = 600

    ㅤㅤ

    Therefore, 1000 and 600 are the first and second numbers.

    Answer:

    Let the first number be x and the second number be y. Given : The sum of two numbers is 1600. Hence, the numbers are 1000 and 600.
