Two trains are carrying cargo. The first train carries 33 tons of cargo in wagons, and the second – 36 tons. Only two trains carry 1794 tons of cargo. Indicate how many tons of cargo each train carries if the number of wagons in the trains is the same.
1. Let’s calculate how many tons of cargo are transported by two wagons together.
33 + 36 = 69 tons.
2. Let us determine how many wagons in one train, if it is known that two wagons carry 69 tons of coal.
1794/69 = 26 cars.
3. Find out how many tons of cargo a train in which one wagon holds 33 tons of cargo is transported.
26 * 33 = 858 tons.
4. Let’s find how many tons of cargo the second train carries.
36 * 26 = 936 tons.
Answer: The first train carried 858 tons of cargo, and the second train carried 936 tons of cargo.
