Answer: Option A

Explanation:

80% of 40 = 40 * (80/100) and 4/5 fo 25 = 25 * 4/5
[40* (80/100) - 25*(4/5) ] = [3200/100 - 100/5]

 Ravi's salary was reduced by 25%.Percentage increase to be effected to bring the salary to the original level is

Answer: Option A

Explanation:

Method: 1
Let's assume Ravi salary = 100
It get reduced by 25% => Salary = 75
75(1 + P/100) = 100
1+ P/100 = 4/3
P = 100/3 = 33 1/3%.

Method: 2

You can use directly formula i.e
[(R*100)/(100-R)]% Where 'R' is decresed %
so put 25 at place of 'R'
=> [(25 * 100)/(100 - 25)]% => [(25 *100)/75]%
=>100/3% = 33 1/3%

ShortCut By :: ongolu Ashok Kumar

by using formula =(r*100)/(100-r)=(25*100)/(100-25)%

                                                             =2500/75

                                                          =33 1/3%

 Fresh fruit contains 68% water and dry fruit contains 20% water. How much dry fruit can be obtained from 100 kg

Answer: Option C

Explanation:

1. Given fresh fruit has 68% water,
=> Remaining 32% will be fruit content.
2. Given Dry fruit has 20% water
=> Remaining 80% is fruit content.

Here assume weight of dry fruit = x kg.
"fruit content in both the fresh fruit and dry fruit is the same"
Fruit % in fresh-fruit = fruit% in dry-fruit
so (32/100) * 100 = (80/100 )* x
=> x = 40 kg.

 Ram donated 4% of his income to a charity and deposited 10% of the rest in a Bank. if now he has Rs 8640 left with him, then his income is

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Let Ram's Income = Rs. 100.
Donation to charity = Rs. 4
Amount deposited in bank = (96 * l0)/100 = Rs. 9.6
Savings = (100 - 13.6) = Rs. 86.4
so Rs. 86.4 = 100
=> Rs. 8640 = (100/86.4) * 8640 = Rs. 10000

out of that 35 are man and remaining 65 are women.
20% of man 35 = 20*35/100

 A student multiplied a number by 3/5 instead of 5/3. What is the percentage error in the calculation?

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Let the number be x.

Then, error = x*5/3 - x*3/5 = x * 16/15

So Error% = ( x*16/15 * 3/5x * 100)% = 64%.

ShortCut By :: Nagaraja

TO FIND ERROR 2 STEPS

1) DIFFERENCE = TRUE VALUE- FALSE VALUE I.E, 5/3-3/5=16/5.

2)ERROR % = DIFFERENCE/TRUE VALUE  MULTIPLIED BY 100


(16/5)/(5/3)  x 100 =16/5 X 3/5 X 100 =64

 In a certain college, 20% of the boys and 40% of the girls attended the annual college outing. If 35% of all the students are boys, what percent of all the employees went to the outing?

Answer: Option A

20% of boys = (35)*20/100 = 7
40% of girls = (65)*40/100 = 26
Totally (26+7)=33 employee went to outing.
So 33 is 33% in 100
=> 33% employees went for outing.
