The Score's ratio of two teams P and Q is 5:8. If the score of team P is increased by 60% and those of Q decrease by 35%, then the new ratio of their score becomes 9:8.Find the score of team P.
Assume that original score of P and Q be 5x and 8x respectively.
New score of P after increasing 60% = 160% of 5x
160 / 100 x 5x = 8x
New score of Q after decreasing 35% = 65% of 8x
65 / 100 x 8x = 26x / 5
Therefore 8x : 26x / 5 = 9 : 8 (given)
40x / 26x = 9 / 8
This cannot give x value
Hence the given data is inadequate
