Solution

Let, the fare of ticket for station A be Rs. x

and the fare of ticket for station B be Rs. y

According, to the question

2x + 3y = 77....(1)

and

3x+5y = 124...(2)

Multiplying equation no. (1) by 3 and (2) by 2.

y = 17

From (1) 2x + 3 (17) = 77

2x = 77 - 51

2x = 26

x = 13

Thus, fare for station A = Rs. 13

and, fare for station B = Rs. 17
