TANCET 2012 Quant Q 42 - Percents / Fractions

The question is from the topic percentages. A very easy question.

Question

If S is 150 percent of T, then T is what percent of S + T?
  1. 33.33%
  2. 40%
  3. 75%
  4. 80%
  5. 85%
Correct Answer - 40%. Choice (2)

Explanatory Answer

The easiest way to solve this question is by assuming a value for T.

Take T to be 100.

Therefore, S = 150% of T = 150% of 100 = 150.

So, S + T = 150 + 100 = 250.

We need to find out T as a percent of S + T

i.e., = 40%

Correct answer choice (2)

Level of difficulty : Easy
