Question

If a box of sweets is divided among 24 children, they will get 5 sweets each. How many would each get, if the number of the children is reduced by 4?
Fill up the blank with the right answer ___ .


Solution

As the number of children increases, the number of sweets to each decreases.

So, xy=constant

x1=24 and y1 = 5

x2 = 20 and y2 = ?

x1y1= x2y2
y2=24×520=6

So, each child gets 6 sweets.
