• # question_answer 1)                 If a box of sweets is divided among 24 children, they will get 5 sweets each. How many would each get, if the number of the children is reduced by 4?

Suppose that each would get $x$ sweets. Thus, we have the following table.
 Number of children 24 $24-4=20$ Number of sweets 5 $x$
Lesser the number of children, more is will be the number of sweets each would get. So, this is a case of inverse proportion.       Hence,       $24\times 5=20\times x$ $\Rightarrow$               $x=\frac{24\times 5}{20}$ $\Rightarrow$               $x=6$ Hence, each would get 6 sweets.
