Answer to the picture puzzle:
Height of the table = 150 cm
Let the height of table be T
Let the height of Cat be C &
Let the height of Tortoise be R
So as per the given picture we can write the following equations:
T + C – R = 170 &
T + R – C = 130
Let’ s add these 2 equations to find the result;
T + C – R = 170
+ T – C + R = 130
= 2 T + 0 + 0 = 300
i.e 2T = 300
Therefore we get;
T = 150
Hence, the height of the table is 150 cm.
