A man climbing up a wall of 24 meters high, climbs 16 m on one day but slipped back by 3 m 40 cm in the evening. How far had the man reached on the total day?
Answer: (2) 12.6 m
A man climbs on a day = 16 m.
But he slipped back on the day = 3 m 40 cm.
So, he reached on the total day = 16.00 – 3.40 = 12.6 m.
Hence, the answer is (2) 12.6 m.
