XAT 2012 Question 80

Instructions

The following pie chart shows the percentage distribution of runs scored by a batsman in a test innings.


Question 80

If the batsman has scored a total of 306 runs, how
many 4s and 6s did he hit?

Solution

Total runs scored in 4's = $$\dfrac{43.16}{100}\times 306$$ = 132 

Therefore, total number of 4's scored by the batsman = $$\dfrac{132}{4}$$ = 33

Total runs scored in 6's = $$\dfrac{3.92}{100}\times 306$$ = 12 

Therefore, total number of 6's scored by the batsman = $$\dfrac{12}{6}$$ = 2

Hence, we can say that option E is the correct answer.
