When two numbers are added it gives 330. When the last digit of the greater number is removed, 1st number is obtained. Find the numbers.


  • When two numbers are added it gives 330, i. e.
  • Let x be the larger number and y be the smaller one. If we remove the last digit of the greater number, other number is obtained.
  • From this information we can say that last digit must be 0.
  • Lets assume the number is 330. Divide this number into two parts, 300 and 30. If we remove the right most 0 from 300 then we will get 30, which is the second number, i. e. 30. Adding these two numbers (300 and 30) we are getting 330.
  • So, we can say that numbers are 300 and 30.

  • More working hours, more work done
  • We can say working hours and work done are in direct proportion.
  • Tina can complete a work in 12 hours.
  • In 12 hours Tina can do 1 complete work
  • Then in 8 hours she can complete x amount of work

  • So, Tina has completed of whole work.
  • Yet of the work is incomplete which Ann has to do.
  • Ann can complete a work in 9 hours.
  • Ann can do 1 complete work in 9 hours
  • Then work she can complete in y hours

  • So, Ann can complete the remaining work in 3 hours.
