Question

# Tanay obtained 98 marks in a mathematics test. His score is the highest in the class and it is also 8 more than three times the lowest score. Create the equation and calculate the lowest score.

Hint:

### let the lowest score be x .tanay's score is 8 more than three times the lowest score.(i.e 8 + 3x = 98)

## The correct answer is: 30

### Ans :- 30 is the lowest score of the class

Explanation :-

let the lowest score be x,

Given tanay's score is 8 more than three times the lowest score.

Tanay’s score = 8 + 3(x) .

Where tanay’s score = 98 (given)

So, 3x +8 = 98 3x = 98 -8

3x = 90

30 is the lowest score in the class.

For the solution of the system of equations above, what is the value of ?

**Note:**

The equations can be solved in many other ways like substitution

method which is: to eliminate one variable in any one of the

equations with the help of other equation. As we need to find the

value of x, we try to find the value of y in terms of x from one

equation. Then put that value of y in the other equation to get a linear equation in one variable , which is x.
