Math is one subject that students find tough to understand. The difficult problems, endless practice questions and equations certainly don't make it easy. However, learning math can be made fun and less stressful if students are allowed to learn at their own pace. Making allowances for the difference in grasping power between peers goes a long way in making the subject acceptable to students. This is one of the advantages offered by online tutoring and math help. Students in all grades can find math help for free online. This is great for students who need a lot of extra help in the subject as they can learn at their own pace. Online tutors take virtual lessons and use interactive whiteboards and other tools to teach. Online tutoring has several advantages over the traditional tutoring centers as it allows students to schedule classes to suit their time table. It follows the principle of learning when you want to learn.

## Solved Examples

**Question 1:**Yash is two year older than his little sister Alia. Taken together, the sum of their ages is 8.

**Solution:**

Let age of Alia = x

and age of Yash = x + 2

Because Yash is two years older than Alia

Since Sum of their ages is 8.

=> x + (x + 2) = 8

Solve for x,

=> 2x + 2 = 8

=> 2x = 6

=> x = 3

=>

and age of Yash = x + 2

Because Yash is two years older than Alia

Since Sum of their ages is 8.

=> x + (x + 2) = 8

Solve for x,

=> 2x + 2 = 8

=> 2x = 6

=> x = 3

=>

**Age of Allia = 3, then age of Yash = 3 + 2 = 5.****Question 2:**John has 25 apples and 20 oranges. How many pieces of fruit does he have?

**Solution:**

Number of apples he have = 25

Number of oranges = 20

=> Total number of fruit he have = 25 + 20 = 45.

=> John have 25 fruits in total.

Number of oranges = 20

=> Total number of fruit he have = 25 + 20 = 45.

=> John have 25 fruits in total.

**Question 3:**There are y boys in the class. This is four more than five times the number of girls. How many girls are in the class if total number of students are 34?

**Solution:**

Let x be the number of girls

Total number of students = 34

According to the problem:

x + y = 34

=> y = 34 - x ........................(1)

and 5x + 4 = y ......................... (2)

Substitute equation (1) in (2)

=> 5x + 4 = 34 - x

=> 6x = 30

=> x = 5, put in (1)

=> y = 34 - 5 = 29

=>

and

Total number of students = 34

According to the problem:

x + y = 34

=> y = 34 - x ........................(1)

and 5x + 4 = y ......................... (2)

Substitute equation (1) in (2)

=> 5x + 4 = 34 - x

=> 6x = 30

=> x = 5, put in (1)

=> y = 34 - 5 = 29

=>

**Number of girls = 5**and

**number of boys = 29.**
