Question 4 : Some members of a social service organization in Kolkata decide to prepare 2400 laddoos to gift to children in various orphanages and slums in the city, during Durga Puja. The plan is that each of them makes the same number of laddoos. However, on laddoo-making day, ten members are absent, thus each remaining member makes 12 laddoos more than earlier decided.
How many members actually make the laddoos?
Let’s assume that the number of members decided to make the Laddoos be ‘n’
and number of laddoos be ‘k’
So that, nk = 2400
On ladoo-making day, ten members are absent, thus each remaining member makes 12 laddoos more than earlier decided.
Hence, (n-10)(k+12) = 2400
If we solve the above two equations, we will get n = 50.
Therefore, the members actually make the laddoos is n - 10 = 40.
The correct answer would be 40
Choice E is the correct answer.
