Question 62

The investment in electricity and thermal energy in 1995 in these two districts formed what per cent of the total investment made in that year?


Total investment in year $$1995 = 7081.6 + 2923.1 = 10004.7$$
Total electricity and thermal invesment in year 1995 for both villages = $$815.2 + 632.4 + 2065.8 + 1232.7 = 4726.1$$
Percentage investment = $$\frac{4726.1}{10004.7} \times 100$$
