• Let the original number be x.According to the question we can write as (2/3)x+20xOn rearranging x−(2/3)x=20
• Let the original number be x.According to the question we can write as (2/3)x+20xOn rearranging x−(2/3)x=20Now taking the L.C.M od 1 and 3 is 3
• Let the original number be x.According to the question we can write as (2/3)x+20xOn rearranging x−(2/3)x=20Now taking the L.C.M od 1 and 3 is 3(3x−2x)/3=20
• Let the original number be x.According to the question we can write as (2/3)x+20xOn rearranging x−(2/3)x=20Now taking the L.C.M od 1 and
• Let the original number be x.According to the question we can write as (2/3)x+20xOn rearranging x−(2/3)x=20Now taking the L.C.M od 1 and 3 is 3(3x−2x)/3=20x/3=20Again by transposing x=60So the original number is 60
