Solution: Let the fixed charge be Rs x and per km charge be Rs y. According to the question, x + 10y = 105 …………….. (1) x + 15y = 155 …………….. (2) From (1), we get x = 105 – 10y ………………. (3) Substituting the value of x in (2), we get 105 – 10y + 15y = 155 5y = 50 y = 10 …………….. (4) Putting the value of y in (3), we get x = 105 – 10 × 10 = 5
