People of Sundargram planted trees in the village garden. Some of the trees were fruit trees. The number of non fruit trees were two more than three times the number of trees. What was the number of fruit tress planted , if the number of non fruit trees planted was 77 ?

Given :

Number of non fruit trees planted $= 77$.

The number of non fruit trees are two more than three times the number of fruit trees.

To find :

We have to find the number of fruit trees.

Solution :

Let the number of fruit trees be x.

This implies,

The number of non fruit tress = $3x + 2$

$3x + 2 = 77$

$3x = 77-2$

$3x = 75$

$x = \frac{75}{3}$

$x=25$

Therefore, the number of fruit trees planted was 25.
