Question 4:

The students of a class are made to stand in rows. If 3 students are extra in a row, there would be 1 row less. If 3 students are less in a row, there would be 2 rows more. Find the number of students in the class.


Let the number of rows be x and number of students in a row be y.

Total students of the class

= Number of rows × Number of students in a row

= xy

Using the information given in the question,

Condition 1

Total number of students = (x − 1) (y + 3)
