The perimeter of a rectangular swimming pool is 154 m. Its length is 2 m more than twice it’s breadth. What are the length and the breadth of the pool?
Let the breadth be x m. The length will be (2x + 2) m. Perimeter of swimming pool = 2( l+b ) = 154 m. 2( 2x+2 + x ) = 154 2(3x+2) = 154 Dividing both the sides by 2, we obtain 2(3x+2)\2 = 154/2 3x+2 = 77 On transposing 2 to R.H.S, we obtain 3x = 77-2 3x = 75 On dividing both sides by 3, we obtain 3x/3 = 75/3 x = 25 2x+2 = 2*25+2 = 52 Hence, the breadth and length of the pool are 25m and 52m, respectively.
“Justice delayed is justice denied”, do you agree?
If the rain falls after the destruction of the crops, it is of no use. Similarly in the legal sphere, if a victim of violence or an innocent person does not get relief within proper time, it is nothing but injustice to such person. Cases are adjourned unreasonably and deliberately. There are procedural defects and loopholes in the legal set up. If the delays are not curbed, there is apprehension that the judicial system itself may collapse due to the burden of the pendency of cases.
What abilities make you a better tutor?
I try to analyze the understanding level of the student and I aim at explaining the solution to the problem starting from the basics.It's very important to clear the basics, may it be basics of mathematics or of writing. Helping students gain the confidence while dealing with their problems has always been my foremost concern. I believe having patience while providing solutions is very important for a tutor to be successful.
