Solution

## The correct option is B 34Let, Emma had x apples intially. Remaining apples after eating four =x−4 She distributed x−4 to five of her friends and each of her friends gets 6 apples ∴(x−4)5=6 Multiply both the sides by 5 (x−4)5×5=6×5 ⇒(x−4)=30 Add 4 to both the sides x−4+4=30+4 x=34 Hence, Emma had 34 apples intially.
