# How Tall Is The Table? | Cat, Tortoise, Table - With Answer

ONLY FOR GENIUS

From the above two pictures, can you find out the height of the table?

In the first image, when the cat is on top of the table, the height from top of tortoise to top of cat is 170 cm

In the second image, when the tortoise is on the table, the height from top of tortoise to top of cat is 130 cm.

From the above two equations, can you calculate the height of table?

**ANSWER**

150 cm is the height of the table.

__Explanation__

There are two methods through which you can find the height of the table.

__METHOD 1:__

Equation 1: Cat + Table - Tortoise = 170

Equation 2: Tortoise + Table - Cat = 130

Adding Equation 1+ Equation 2;

Cat + Table - Tortoise + Tortoise + Table - Cat = 300

=> 2 Table = 300

=> Table = 150__METHOD 2__

If you place the right side table on top of the left side table, then the heights of cats will coincide. So the total height of 2 tables will be 300 and so the height of one table is 150 cms.

Nicely explained.
