If 1/8 of a pencil is black, 1/2 of the remaining is white and the remaining, 3/2cm is blue. Find the total length of the pencil?

A) 8 cms B) 7 cms
C) 9 cms D) 11 cms
 
Answer & Explanation Answer: A) 8 cms

Explanation:

Let the total length of the pencil = x cms

From the given data,

'x/8' is black

Remaining part = x - x/8 = 7x/8

1/2 of 7x/8 is white

=> 7x/16 is white (Remaining part is 7x/16)

And given that the remaining part is blue and is 3 1/2 cm = 7/2 = 3.5 cm

That remaining part = 7x/16

Therefore,

7x/16 = 7/2

x = 16/2 = 8

Hence, the total length of the pencil = x = 8 cm.
