Ques 1 Percentage

A is 150% of B and B is 40% of C. If A+B+C=20, then the value of 2B+3C – 4A is equal to

a) 11

b) 12

c) 13

d) 14

d is the correct option

Given that A is 150% of B, so A = 150/100 * B = 3B/2

Given that B is 40% of C, so B = 40/100 * C = 2C/5

Also given that A + B + C = 20

Substituting the values of A and B in terms of C, we get

3C/2 + 2C/5 + C = 20

10C/10 = 20

C = 2

So, B = 4 and A = 6

Therefore, 2B + 3C - 4A = 2 * 4 + 3 * 2 - 4 * 6 = 8 + 6 - 24 = 14.

Hence, the correct answer is option (d).

a) 14%

b) 18%

d) 20%

d is the correct option

The original earnings is 800, and the new earnings is 960. The difference is 960 - 800 = 160.

The percentage increase=(Increase / Original) * 100%

The percentage increase=(160 / 800) * 100% = 20%
