Twisted Math: From XXL to M at inspirations

Here’s a tough math equation. Got this one from an inspirations™ (a slimming and beauty clinic for men and women) advertisement.

XXL to M

We’ll help you trim down to size. Just for Rs.2999/- 5 Kgs Weight Loss + 5 Tummy Trims + 5 Inch Loss Sessions. For details SMS SLIM to 6767.


x = Cost per kg lost
y = Cost per tummy trim and
z = Cost per inch loss session


5x + 5y + 5z = 2999 or

x + y + z = 599.80

We’ve just hit a roadblock – 3 unknowns and just 1 equation. Drop a comment if you can crack this one.

  1. It is an ugly trend that all blog entries are getting commented by M, R, S. And Mr. Vinaya, you started it all. It does not make a good reading … say after a year somebody revisits a classic entry. For me names add a special sentimental value. Aren’t you guys fed up of working out Algebraic equations with x, y and z in school. Grow up.
