Rs. 30000
Rs. 35000
Option A
X * (25 + 20)/100 * (60/100) = 16500
X*(55/100)*(60/100) = 16500
X = 16500*(100/55)*(100/60)
X = Rs. 50000

2. Sai gave 65% of the amount he had to Ria. Ria gave 2/5th of what he received from Sai to Suma. After paying Rs. 320 to the taxi driver out of the amount he gets from Ria, Suma is now left with Rs. 1500. How much amount did Sai have?

Option C
Let Sai’s amount be x,
Suma now having the amount of 1500,
=>(x*(65/100)*(2/5)) – 320 = 1500
= > x*(65/100)*(2/5) = 1820

Option A
(62/100) * x * (26/100) + (38/100) * x * (35/100) = 29420
=> 403x/2500 + 133x/1000 = 29420
=> 1471x/5000 = 29420
= > x = 29420*(5000/1471)
=> x = 100000

4. M scored 45% marks and failed by 18 marks. N scored 54% marks and get 27 marks more than the passing marks. What is the score of P in the same examination, who secured 75 % marks?
