15% of Rs. 34 = Rs.(^{15}⁄_{100}x 34 ) = Rs. 5.10

^{p}⁄_{100}x 932 = 279.6 p = 279.6 x^{100}⁄_{932}= 30

Q 3 - Three candidates contested and election and received 1136, 7636 and 11628 votes respectively. What percentage of the total votes did the winning candidate get?

Total votes polled: 1136 + 7636 + 11628 = 20400 Therefore, percentage = (^{11628}⁄_{20400}x 100)% = 57%

Q 4 - If A = p% of q and B = q% of p, then which of the following is true?

p% of q = (^{p}⁄_{100}x q) = (^{q}⁄_{100}x p) = q% of p → A = B

Q 5 - A man pays 15% income tax. If his annual income is 15,00,000/-, how much does he pay as income tax annually?

15% of Rs 1,50,000 = (15/100)*1,50,000 = 15*1500 = Rs 22500

Q 6 - A's salary is 50% more than that of B. How much percent is B's salary less than that of A?

Required percentage = {50/(100+50)}*100% = 50/150 * 100 = 100/3

Q 7 - x is 7 times large as Y. The percent that Y is less then x is

x=7Y .Thus, Y is less than x by 6Y => Y is less x by 6Y/7Y*100=600/7%

Q 8 - A Man donated 5% of his income to a trust and deposited 20 % of the remainder in bank. If he now gets Rs. 1919 left, what is his income.

Let his income be x, then x-5% of x - 20% of 95% of x = 1919 0r x-x/20-(20*95*x)/(100*100)=1919 x=Rs.2525

Let x% of 24 = 0.72. Then, (x/100*24)=0.72= 72/100=>24x=72 =>x=3.

Q 10 - The production of company A increased by 25% from 1994 to 1995 and its production further increased by 60% from 1995 to 1996. What is the total percent increase in production from 1994 to 1996?

Production in 1996 = 160/100 * 125/100 * Production on 1994 = 20000/10000 * Production on 1994 = 2 * Production on 1994 ∴ Required % Increase = {(Production on 1996 - Production on 1994)/ Production on 1994}*100% Consider, Production on 1994 = x. Then, Production on 1996 = 2x. = (2x – x)/x * 100%= 100%
