Ans : 41

first race loss = x
second race loss =  y

Cond 1 : x+y = 68

Cond 2 : y = x + 6

Simultaneous eq. needs to be solved.

money lost by first person in 2nd race=[((68-6)/2)+6]=37.

his friend lost Rs4 more

so his friend lost 37+4=41 rupees.

ans :

x + x+6 = rs 68

2x + 6 = 68

2x = 68-6

2x = 62

x=31

x is the amt lost in I race

x+ 6 = 31+6=37 is lost in second race

then my friend lost 37 + 4 = 41 Rs

F+S=68;S-F=6;

Suppose first race loss is x Rs.
Then second race loss is 6Rs. more than first so... it is x+6Rs.
Sum of those two races - x+x+6 = 68 we solve it we get value of x is 31.
My friend lost 4Rs. more than my second race so it is 37+4=41
Ans is 41

Let x and y be the Rs. that I lost x+y 68 also y x+6 substituting for y we get 37 Rs. so my friends loss is 41 Rs.

let x and y are the two loses

then x+y=68
n y=x+6  [a/q]
so x=31 and y=37

so the friend lost 37+4=41

First Race=x
Second Race= x+6
Total = Rs. 68
x+(x+6)=68
2x+6=68
2x=68-6
2x=62
x=62/2
x=31
First race=Rs. 31
Second race= 31+6= Rs. 37
4 more in second race= 37+4= Rs. 41
