Question

The Indian cricket team won 4 more matches than it lost against New Zeland. If India won 35 of its matches, how many matches did India play ?
  1. 8
  2. 20
  3. 40
  4. 30


Solution

The correct option is B 20
Let the number of matches lost be x
The number of matches won = x + 4.
Total matches played = x + x + 4
We have, x+4=35(2x+4)
5(x+4)=3(2x+4)
5x+20=6x+12
6x5x=2012
x=8
Total matches played = x + x + 4
                                        = 8 + 8+ 4
                                        =20
