Accepted Solution

A:

Answer: The number of Girls players in the Team of 18 players is 6 . Step-by-step explanation:Given as :The total number of player including boys and girls = 18 And [tex]\frac{1}{2}[/tex] times girls player + [tex]\frac{1}{3}[/tex] times boys player = 7Let The number of boys player = BThe number of girls player = GSo, According to questionG + B = 18 ...1 [tex]\frac{1}{2}[/tex] × G + [tex]\frac{1}{3}[/tex] × B= 7or, [tex]\frac{G}{2}[/tex] + [tex]\frac{B}{3}[/tex] = 7 ...2or, Put the value of B from eq 1or, [tex]\frac{G}{2}[/tex] + [tex]\frac{18 - G}{3}[/tex] = 7 Or, [tex]\frac{G}{2}[/tex] - [tex]\frac{G}{3}[/tex] + 6 = 7or, [tex]\frac{3G - 2G}{6}[/tex] = 7 - 6Or, [tex]\frac{G}{6}[/tex] = 1∴ G = 1 × 6 = 6Hence The number of Girls players in the Team of 18 players is 6 .
