### Question 3

Out of a collection of only blue and pink marbles, 2 pink marbles are removed away. After that there are 2 blue marbles for every pink marble. Next, 36 blue marbles are removed away. As a result, there are 5 pink marbles for every blue marble. How many blue marbles are there at present?

8 marbles.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the number of blue marbles at present be x. The number of pink marbles at present are 5x. If we put back 36 blue marbles, the equation becomes x + 36 = 2 × 5x, which gives 9x = 36, or x = 4 marbles. Note: some information in the question is never used, it is given for confusing the candidate.
