Math Riddle Answers

You must have figured out the answers by now. 

Still, we are going to reveal the answers so you can cross-check your answers.

Math Riddle #1 

Let the number of sacs carried by Tom be T and Jerry be J. 

Then, T + 1 = 2 * (J-1)

T + 1 = 2J - 2

T = 2J - 3

Also, 

T - 1 = J + 1

T = J + 2

Now, comparing both equations,

2J - 3 = J + 2

J = 5

Substitute the value of J=5 in any of the above equations.

T=7

Hence, Jerry was carrying 5 sacks and Tom was carrying 7 sacks.

Math Riddle #2 

Let Raymond's present age be x years.

Hence, Harry's present age will be (4x + 3) years.

After 5 years, 

Raymond's age = x + 5 years and 

Harry's age = 4x+ 8 years.

Also, after 5 years Harry's age will be one year more than thrice Raymond’s age.

(4x + 8) = 3 * (x + 5) + 1

4x + 8 = 3x + 16

x = 8

Substituting the value of x in the first equation.

4(8)+3= 32+3= 35

Therefore, Harry's present age is 35 years.

Math Riddle #3

Let the number of employees be 7x and managers be 3x. 

Hence, the total workforce taking lunch in the canteen

= (7x) (70/100) + (3x) (30/100)

= 49(x/10) + 9(x/10)

= 58(x/10)

Total workforce = 7x+ 3x = 10x

Hence, the percentage of the workforce taking lunch in the canteen:

= [(58x/10) x 100] / 10x

= 58 %
