[Solved] Ankit visited an exhibition

Ankit visited an exhibition near his house. He rode his new bicycle gifted by his mother for winning the science competition. After reaching the exhibition Ankit saw that there were a total of 14 bicycles and tricycles. Given the total number of wheels to be 38, find the number of tricycles in the park.​


Total number of cycles = 14

Each Bicycle has 2 wheels and Each Tricycle has 3 wheels

Consider Each cycle in the park has at least 2 wheels.

So the Total number of cycles x 2 wheels = 14 x 2 = 28 wheels.

Total number of wheels given = 38

38 – 28 = 10 remaining wheels.

It means that there are 10 cycles with 3 wheels. Therefore, the total number of tricycles in the park is 10.
