1971*59= 60X

X= 1937.something

// where I got wrong



2:. A person needs 6 steps to cover a distance of one slab.if he increases his foot         length(step length) by 3 inches he needs only 5 steps to cover the slabs length.

Take slab length = X so original step length = (X/6)

Now it increase by 3 inches so (X\6 + 3)

Now 5*(X\6+3) = X

// where I got wrong………


// what is method to solve the foll. Example ..
