Richa and Meera were walking on the road of a park. Richa said, “I weigh 47 Kgs. How much do you weigh?” Meera replied that she wouldn’t reveal her weight directly as she is overweight. But she said, “I weigh 26 Kgs plus half of my weight.” How much does Meera weigh?

It is given that Meera weighs 26 Kgs plus half of her own weight. It means that 26 Kgs is the other half. So she weighs 52 Kgs. Solving mathematically, let’s assume that her weight is W Kgs. W = 26 + W/2 2xW = 52 + W W = 52 Kgs
Acc. to the hypothesis,
meera’s actual weight is 26 plus half her weight
=> W = (W/2) + 26
=> W/2 = 26
=> W = 52 kg
(& also, it satisfies d condition that she z overweight compared to richa since 52>47)
@ parshant : Dear,you are doing great job . But there are some technical problems. like when i Am clicking on link for RC of the day . it is not diverting me to the right web page. so kindly check if possible then resolve .
thank you !
can you provide me the link?
Ans:52 kg .
As meera replied ” i(meera’s) weigh 26 kg plus half of my(meera’s) weigh’
so let’s say her weigh is X= X/2+26
this will give X =52.
that is meera’s weigh.
Cant be determined
