Solahted:Answer === 28 fish was caught on Monday Working : Let the number of fish caught on Monday be x Therefore, number of fish caught on Tuesday will be 2x Total mass of all fish caught on Monday = 15kg, Average mass of fish caught on Monday = Total/count = 15/x Average mass of fish caught on Tuesday = Total/count = 23/2x It is said that the average mass of Tuesday's catch is 1/8kg less than that of Monday's catch, Therefore, 15/x - 23/2x = 1/8 Find the LCM and collecting like terms gives: (30-23)/2x = 1/8 which gives: 7/2x = 1/8 ==> 2x = 56, Therefore x = 28. Recall that x represents the number of fish caught on Monday. Finally, The number of fish caught on Monday = 28 (Q.E.D) |
