 Hide Ans

Option(D) is correct

Let Ram under takes a tour of $x$ days.

Then, expenses for each day = \(\dfrac{360}{x}\)


$x=20$ and $−24$

Hence, $x$= 20 days.

(2) Comment(s)


Ans is $(x+20)(x-24)$

that is $x= -20$, $x= 24$

Positive ans is 24


Can you provide the calculation steps, because $x=20$ satisfies the equation given in the solution.


Whereas $x=24$ does not.
