To do:

We have to solve the given questions.


(a) Number of marbles Irfan has $=37$.

Let the number of marbles Parmit has be $x$.

According to question,

$5\times x+7=37$





Therefore, Parmit has 6 marbles.

(b) Let the age of Laxmi be $x$.

Age of Laxmi’s father $=49$ years

According to question,

$3\times x+4=49$





Therefore, Laxmi’s age is 15 years

(c) Let the number of fruit tress be $x$.

This implies,

The number of non-fruit

trees $=3\times x+2$

According to question,






The number of fruit trees planted was 25.
