Ex 4.4, 3 Solve the following: (iii) 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 fruit trees. What was the number of fruit trees planted if the number of non-fruit trees planted was 77?Let number of fruit of fruit trees = t
Given that,
Number of Non-fruit trees
= 2 more than 3 times the number of fruit trees
Number of non-fruit trees = 2 + 3t.
Also,
Number of non-fruit trees = 77
Thus,
2 + 3t = 77
3t = 77 − 2
3t = 75
t = 75/3
t = 25
∴ Number of fruit tr
