On a rainy day, 94 percent of the students were present in a school. If the number of students absent on that day was 174, find the total strength of the school.

Given :

Percentage of students present on rainy day$=94$%.

Number of students absent $=174$.

To do :

We have to find the total strength of the school.

Solution :

Let the total strength of the school be 'x'.

Percentage of students absent $=100-94=6$%.

So, 6% of $x = 174$

$\frac{6}{100}x = 174$

$x = 174 \times \frac{100}{6}$

$x = 29 \times 100$

$x = 2900$

Therefore, the total strength of the school is 2900.
