Sekhar gives a quarter of his sweets to Renu and then gives 5 sweets to Raji. He has 7 sweets left. How many did he have to start with?



Let the number of sweets he had at start be x.
⇒Sweets given to Renu= \frac{x}{4}
⇒Sweets given to Raji=5
x- \frac{x}{4} -5=7
x= \frac{48}{3} =16
Ans: Sekhar had 16 sweets at start.
