Answer: Option B Explanation: Let the price of a saree and a shirt be Rs. Then, 2 and Divide equation (i) by 2, we get the below equation. => x + 2y = 800. --- (iii) Now subtract (iii) from (ii) x + 6y = 1600 (-) x + 2y = 800 ---------------- 4y = 800 ---------------- Therefore, y = 200. Now apply value of y in (iii) => x + 2 x 200 = 800 => x + 400 = 800 Therefore x = 400 Solving (i) and (ii) we get Cost of 12 shirts = Rs. (12 x 200) = Rs. 2400. |
