## (b) Let the present ages be x and y yr .

Then,
x - y = 20
and
( x - 5) = 5 ( y - 5)
From Eqs. (i) and (ii),
20 + y - 5 = 5y - 25

y = 10 yr and
x = 30 yr

## (c) 1 candle is made from 9 stubs.

Hence, 116 candles will be made from 1044 stubs.
From 116 candles, 12 candles can be made with
8 stubs left.
Now, total stubs left = (12 + 8) = 20 out of which two
candles can be made with 2 stubs left.
\ Maximum number of candles that can be made
= 116 + 12 + 2 = 130

## (c) A number is divisible by 8 if the number formed by

the last three digits is divisible by 8, ie, 58N is
divisible by 8.
Hence, N = 4
Again a number is divisible by 11 if the difference
between the sum of digits at even place and sum of
digits at the odd places is either 0 or divisible by 11,
ie, (M + 9 + 4 + 4 + 8) - (3 + 0 + 8 + 5 + N )
= M + 25 - (16 + N ) = M - N + 9
(M - N ) + 9 must be zero or it must be divisible
by 11
ie,
M -N =2

M = 2+ 4 = 6
\
M = 6, N = 4
