Math Riddles with Answers: Solution
Answer: Blue Fish = 3 and Red Fish = -2
We shall refer to the Blue Fish as X and Red Fish as Y.
Let us look at the equations in a mathematical way.
9X – 11Y = 49 ………………. (Equation 1)
13X – 12Y = 63 ……………….. (Equation 2)
We will solve the question using the elimination method.
We will have to make the X- coefficients the same by eliminating the terms with 'X'.
We will multiply equation (1) with 13 and equation (2) with 9, and then we will subtract equation (2) from (1).
=> 13 x (9X – 11Y) = (49) x 13 ………. Equation 1
=> 9 x (13X – 12Y) = (63) x 9 ……….. Equation 2
=> 117X – 143Y = 637
=> 117X – 108Y = 567
Let us subtract these both equations. (We shall subtract the LHS of Equation 1 from the LHS of Equation 1 and RHS of Equation 2 from the RHS of Equation 2).
=> 117X – 143Y - (117X – 108Y) = 637 -567
=> 117X – 143Y – 117X + 108Y = 70
Both 117X and -117X cancel each other.
We now get:
=> -143y +108y = 70
=> -35y = 70
=> y = -2
Now, let us put the value of Y in equation (1) and solve to find the value of X
=> 9X – 11Y = 69
=> 9X- 11(-2) = 49
=> 9X +22 = 49
=> 9X = 49 -22
=> 9X = 27
=> X = 3
Therefore, the values of X (which is Blue Fish) is 3 and Y (which is Red Fish) -2 respectively.
