One-third of Mohit's marks in mathematics exceeds a half of his marks in english by 30.If he got 240 marks in the two subjects together,how many marks did

he get in english?



The Brainliest Answer!
60, take into consideration his maths and eng marks as x and y. X/3 = y/2 +30. Now, we know that x = 3x (y/2+30) { plz note 3 multiplied by has been written as 3x } We also know that x + y=240 Substitute x = 3x ( y/2 + 30) We get y = 60. Verification: If eng marks is 60 then maths will be 180. 180/3 = 60 which is same as 60/2 +30
