Solution

## The correct option is D ₹8 and ₹10Let the fare from Bangalore bus stand to Malleshwaram be ₹x and the fare from Bangalore bus stand to Yeshwanthpur be ₹y. According to the given situations, we have 2x + 3y = 46 ~...(i) 3x + 5y = 74 ~...(ii) Multiplying equation (i) by 3 and equation (ii) by -2, we get, 6x + 9y = 138 -6x -10y = -148 Adding the two equations, we get, −y=−10 ⇒ y=10 Substitute y=10 in equation (i) 2x+3(10)=46 2x+30=46 2x=46−30 2x=16 x=8 Hence fares from Bangalore bus stand to Malleshwaram and Yeswanthpur are ₹8 and ₹10 respectively.
