In a parking area, the total number of wheels of all the cars

Linear Equations

In a parking area, the total number of wheels of all the cars (four-wheelers) and scooters/motorbikes (two-wheelers) is 100 more than twice the number of parked vehicles. The number of cars parked is

  1. 35
  2. 45
  3. 50
  4. 55

Answer

Let number of two-wheelers = x

Let number of four-wheelers = y

Total number of wheels = 2x + 4y

2x + 4y = 2(x+y) + 100 = 2x + 2y + 100

y = 50

The correct option is C.
