Third part of it =

Fifth part of it =

Given that, the third part exceeds the fifth part by 4

2x = 60

x = 30

The number is 30

Verification:

Third part of 30 = 10

Fifth part of 30 = 6

The difference = 4

let the Number be x .

Therefore ,

1/3x = 1/5x+4

x/3=x/5+4

or x/3=(x+4*5)/5

or x/3 = (x+20)/5

By Cross Multiplication , we get

or 5x = 3(x+20)

or 5x=3x+3*20

or 5x =3x+60

or 5x - 3x =60

or 2x = 60

or x=60/2

or

hence the Number is 30 .

Hope This helps you!!
