### Computer MCQs Series for PPSC, FPSC – Most Repeated MCQs | Set 4

What are you looking for? Let’s dig in quickly

## Explanation

• Three-fourth of a number is 60 more than its one-third.
• The number can be figure out as:

Let suppose the number is y.

Three-fourth of “y”.

y x 3/4

The resultant is 60 more than its one-third

3y/4 – 60 = y/3 ________ (i)

Value of y can be find out easily from equation (i) by just simplifying it (y = 144).

Number = ?

## Solution

Let suppose

Number = y

According to the given condition

3y/4 – 60 = y/3

3y – 240 = 4y/3

3(3y – 240) = 4y

9y – 720 = 4y

9y – 4y = 720

5y = 720

y = 720/5

y = 144

## Conclusion

Three-fourth of a number is 60 more than its one-third. The number is 144.
