** **It was vacation time, and so I decided to visit my cousin’s home. In the mornings, we both would go for a jog. The evenings were spent on the tennis court. Tiring as these activities were, we could manage only one per day, i.e., either we went for a jog or played tennis each day. There were days when we felt lazy and stayed home all day long.

Now, there were 9 mornings when we did nothing, 13 evenings when we stayed at home, and a total of 12 days when we jogged or played tennis. For how many days did I stay at my cousin’s place?

Leave your answers below:

x- go for jog

y- play tennis

z- stay home

Now

y+z=9

x+z=13

x+y=12

On solving,

x=8

y=4

z=5

Total = 17 days. Ans

17 days……

17 days

Anish is correct:

5 days when they did nothing.

Jogged in the morning on 8 days, and played tennis in the evening on 4 occasions.
