Trousers

Jarek bought new trousers, but the trousers were too long. Their length was in the ratio 5: 8 to Jarek height. Mother his trousers cut by 4 cm, thus the original ratio decreased by 4%.

Determine Jarek's high.

Result

v =  160 cm

Solution:


n = 5/8 v
n-4= (5/8*(1-4/100))*v

8n-5v = 0
200n-120v = 800

n = 100
v = 160
