Percentage of marks obtained in A = $\frac{73}{150}$ x 100 = 48.66
Overall percentage = 54%
$\frac{A + B + C}{3}$ = 54%
$\frac{48.66 + 56 + C}{3}$ = 54%
C = 57.34%
Marks = 57.34% of 150 = 86

45% of the total students failed in Hindi
30% failed in English
20% failed in both
Therefore 55% of the total students failed in atleat one subject.
Hence 45% have passed in both

Let the number be x.
Then, Error = 5/3 x-3/5 x=16/15 x
Error % = (16x/15 * 3/5x * 100)% = 64%

Increase % = {r/(100-r)×100}%
= {20/(100-20)×100}%
= {20/80×100}%=25%

Percentage marks will be = (610/750)*100 = 81.3

Suppose B = 100
So A will be 160
And C will be 140
Hence, A exceeds C by 20 or $\frac{20}{140} \times 100$ = 14.28%

Suppose B = 100
So A will be 160
And C will be 140
Hence, A exceeds C by 20 or $\frac{20}{140} \times 100$ = 14.28%

As the difference between the percentages of a number will be 10% of the number that is 77 hence number will be 770
And 14.28% will be $\frac{1}{7}$ of 770 which will be 110
So, answer will be = 110

The total percentage of her salary that Sujata invested is 7% + 18% + 6% = 31%

7% of her salary is Rs. 2170.
So, 31% of her salary is 2170/7 * 31 = 9610

So, Sujata invests Rs. 9610 every month i.e 9610*12 = 115320

Let CP = 100
MP = 100+ 40% of 100 = 100 + 40 = 140
Discount = 10%
SP = 90% of 140 = 126
Profit % = (126-100)/100 = 0.26 = 26%

Let the number of chocolates be N.

After giving 20%, 38% and 14% to the first three kids, the percentage of chocolates remaining with the father is 28%.

3/4 of 28% = 21%

So, 21% of N = 105 => N = 500

Total marks in the test = 100*5 = 500
Total marks scored by the student in all the sections put together = 40+54+60+30 = 184

So, percentage of marks scored by the student = 184/500 * 100 = 184/5 = 36.8 %

Each subject has maximum 140 marks and total subjects available are 5 so total maximum marks are = 5 ×140 = 700

Now his total score = 98+ 129+ 131 + 110 + 120 = 528

% of marks = $\frac{588\times100}{700}$

=84%

The total marks obtained by Paresh is 102+118+104+114+96 = 534
The total marks that could have been obtained is 120*5 = 600

So, the overall percentage obtained by Paresh is 534/600 * 100 = 89%

The marks the students gets is 520.
As the students failed by 5%, percentage of marks received by the student is 55-5 = 50%

Hence, the maximum aggregate marks that a student could have received is 520*100/50 = 1040

Total score of the student in all the 5 tests put together = 45 + 82 + 37 + 57 + 90 = 311
Total maximum score = 90*5 = 450

Percentage score of the student = (100/450) * 311 = 69.11% = 69% approximately

The percentage of money Nandkishore gave to his wife and sons equals 35% + 50% = 85%
So, percentage of money remaining is 100% – 85% = 15%

This equals 11,250.
Hence, the total amount Nandkishore had is 11250 * 100/15 = Rs. 75,000

150 Kg of weight contains 10% low quality weight that is 15 Kg low quality weight.
Let the quantity of good quality wheat to be added be X.
So, $15 = \frac{5}{100}*(150+X)$
Or, $300 = 150+X$

So X = 150 Kg

The total percentage of his income that Mr. Davar spends equals 38% + 25% + 12% = 75%
Hence, the percentage of his monthly income that Mr. Davar saves is 100-75 = 25%
This equals Rs. 5,800

Hence,  Mr. Davar’s monthly income equals 5800 * 100/25 = Rs. 23,200

$\frac{20+x}{100+x} = \frac{50}{100}$
