# If The Score Differed by 9, Then the Total Score Is:

The highest score in an inning was 3/11 of the total and the next highest was 3/11 of the remainder. If the score differed by 9, then the total score is:

- 99
- 110
- 121
- 132

**Answer: (3) 121**

**Explanation:-**

Let the total score be X.

The highest score in an inning was 3/11 of the total.

Then, X x 3/11

= 3 X/ 11

And next highest score was 3/11 of the remainder.

Then, Remainder score = X – 3 X / 11

= (11 X – 3 X)/11

= 8 X / 11

3 /11 of remainder,

8 X x 3 / 11 x 11

= 24 X / 121

The score difference by 9,

3 X / 11 – 24 X / 121 = 9

= (11 x 3 X – 24 X) / 121 = 9

= (33 X – 24 X)/121 = 9

= 9 X / 121 = 9

= X / 121 = 1

X = 121

Then, the total score is 121.

Hence, the answer is (3) 121.
