1 zero.the fisherman caught 3,6,9 and 12 fish on the secong,third,fourth and fifth day,respectively.if we let x represent the number of fish caught on the first day,then

X+(x+3)+(x+6)+(x+9)+(x+12)=30 => x=0)

2 in one day ,nine men work at a rate of x compared to 7 women who work at a rate of y.this can be expressed as:

9x+7y=

Likewise in the 2nd case:

7x+11y=

Taking these 2 equations together,we have:

9x+7y=

7x+11y=

45x+35y=1

28x+44y=1

45x+35y=28x+44y

17x=9y

Y or women’s rate /x or men’s rate = 17/9

The women are better workers by the rario of 17 to 9
