## Explanation

• The highest score in an inning was 3/11 of the total.
• The next highest was 3/11 of the remainder.
• Difference in scores is 9.

We shall assume the total score â€śyâ€ť and highest becomes â€ś3y/11â€ť and reminder will be (y â€“ 3y/11) â€ś8y/11â€ť and 3/11 of the reminder would be â€ś24y/121â€ť and the difference in score is;

3y/11 â€“ 24y/121 = 9

Through this equation; we can easily figure out the total score.

Total score = ?

## Solution

Let suppose

Total score = y

Highest score in inning = 3y/11

Remainder = y â€“ 3y/11 = 8y/11

Next highest = 8y/11 x 3/11 = 24y/121

Difference: 3y/11 â€“ 24y/121 = 9

33y â€“ 24y = 1089

9y = 1089

## Conclusion

The highest score in an inning was 3/11 of the total and the next highest was 3/11 of the remainder. If the scores differed by 9, the total score was 121.
