Dear student

total- 1440

no of students who where supposed to attend - x

no of students who attended-x-8

fee paid by each member in case 1- 1440/x

fee paid by each member in case2-1440/x-8

therefore acc. to the problem


= (1440/x-8) -1440/x=30

x^2-8x-384 (we will get this equation in the end)

after factorizing u will get

x=24 x=-16 .... therefor x=24

(1) no of stud. who attended = 24-8=16

(2) total fee by each member=1440/16=180 rs
