# Word Problem 10

**Problem 10: Find a number which after being multiplied by 5 will exceed 60 as much as it is now short of 60.**

**a. 10 b. 15 c. 25. d.20**

**— number math —**

**Solution: **

Let the number is ‘y’ and if we add ‘z’ it will become equal to 60 (we supposing it is ‘z’ less than 60)

i-e we suppose;

Now five time of the number;

Five times of number exceeds 60 by ‘z’

Com pairing eq 1 & 2

So, the number is 20

**Check**

Number =20

Short of 60=60-20 = 40

i-e it is 40 less than 60

Now five times of number = 5×20=100

Excess more than 60 =100-60=40

Thus it is 40 more than 60 and meets the condition of the problem
