Congratulations - you have completed

*Arithmetic: Percentage Test -3*. You scored %%SCORE%% out of %%TOTAL%%. You correct answer percentage: %%PERCENTAGE%% . Your performance has been rated as %%RATING%% Your answers are highlighted below.

Question 1 |

120% of a number N is 106.8. Then what is 106.8% of N?

94.05 | |

95.05 | |

90.05 | |

none |

Question 1 Explanation:

=>(N x120)/100 = 106.8

=>12N = 1068

=>N= 89

=>So (89 x 106.8)/100

=>89 x 1.068= 95.05

=>12N = 1068

=>N= 89

=>So (89 x 106.8)/100

=>89 x 1.068= 95.05

Question 2 |

Richa’s salary in 2011 was $1000/day and her salary in 2012 was $1250/day. Again Richa’s salary in 2013 is $1000/day. what is the percent change in the salary of the year 2012?

12.5% | |

6.67% | |

25% | |

35 % |

Question 2 Explanation:

This is a simple question of percentage change

The percentage change = (final value – initial value ) / (initial value) x 100

So in 2011 Richa’s salary was 1000

i.e the initial value and then her salary increased to 1250, that is final value.

So the percentage change is (1250-1000) / 1000 x 100 = 25%

The right option is c

The percentage change = (final value – initial value ) / (initial value) x 100

So in 2011 Richa’s salary was 1000

i.e the initial value and then her salary increased to 1250, that is final value.

So the percentage change is (1250-1000) / 1000 x 100 = 25%

The right option is c

Question 3 |

A person spends 40% of his salary on his educational expenses. He spends 60% of it in purchasing books and one-half of the remaining in purchasing stationery items. If he saves Rs 160 every month, which is one-fourth of the balance after spending over books and stationery items, what is his monthly salary?

(a)Rs 8000 | |

Rs 4800 | |

Rs 9600 | |

Data inadequate |

Question 3 Explanation:

Let his monthly salary be (s)

40% on education expenses = 0.4s

=> 0.4s x 60/100 = 0.24s is on purchasing books

=> ½ ( 0.4 – 0.24) = 0.08s is on stationary items

=> So money left will be 0.4s – ( 0.24s + 0.08s)= Rs 0.08s

Now Acc. to the 2

1/4 ( 0.08s) =160

=> 160 x 4/0.08 = Rs 8000

40% on education expenses = 0.4s

=> 0.4s x 60/100 = 0.24s is on purchasing books

=> ½ ( 0.4 – 0.24) = 0.08s is on stationary items

=> So money left will be 0.4s – ( 0.24s + 0.08s)= Rs 0.08s

Now Acc. to the 2

^{nd}statement1/4 ( 0.08s) =160

=> 160 x 4/0.08 = Rs 8000

Question 4 |

One type of liquid contains 25% of milk, the other contains 30% of milk. A container is 6 parts of the first liquid and 4 parts of liquid. The percentage of milk in the container?

27% | |

31% | |

29% | |

33% |

Question 4 Explanation:

The mixture is of 6 x (25/100) + 4 x (30/100) = 270/100

Therefore for 10 parts = (270 x 10)/100=27%

Therefore for 10 parts = (270 x 10)/100=27%

Question 5 |

The retail price of a water geyser is Rs 1265 manufacturer gain 10%, the wholesale d 15% and the retailer gains 25%, then the cost price of the product is

Rs 800 | |

Rs 900 | |

Rs 700 | |

Rs 600 |

Question 5 Explanation:

Let (c) be the cost of product
Therefore we have
c x 110/100 x 115/100 x 125/100 = 1265
c = 1265 x 100/110 x 100/115 x 100/125 = Rs 800
