The cost of 2 tables and 3 chairs is Rs.705. If the table costs Rs.40 more than the chair and the chair, find the cost of the table an chair.

let chair=x

so table=x+40

so,2(x+40)+3x=705

=2x+80+3x=705

5x+80=705

5x=705-80

=5x=625

x=125

cost of table=x+40 ,hence cost of table=165

cost of chair=125

165+165+125+125+125=705

this is the answer

125
