The n0 3 apears 20 times

Similarly between 101 and 200:-20 times

And201 and 299 :- 20 times

Total 60 times and 61^{st} 3 comes in 300

Therefore there are 300 pages

2.Jarius and Kylar are playing the game. If Jarius wins, then he wins twice as many games as Kylar. If Jarius loses, then Kylar wins as the same number of games that Jarius wins. How many do Jarius and Kylar play before this match?

Ans ) let noof match played by the two (j and k)before the current match bex and y resp

If j wins :-x + 1 =2y

Ifk wins :- y + 1 =x

Solvingfor two variables in two eqnans = x = 3 and y = 2

3.Two trains travel from NewYork to Washington and the travel takes 5 hours journey time. Trains leave from Washington for every hour and an half hour and the trains leave from NewYork every hour. If the train leaves from new york , Then how many trains from washington cross this train on its way?

Let us concider the time ofdeparture of first train be 5 0 clock

So it will meet the following trains from opp direction

50 clock to 10o clock

5:30?10:30?

6.00?11.00?

6.30 ?????????????

7.00???????.

7.30???????..
