Percentages - Quant/Math - TANCET 2016 Practice Question

This problem solving question is from the topic Percentages.

Question

A candidate who gets 20% marks fails by 10 marks but another candidate who gets 42% marks gets 12% more than the passing marks. Find the maximum marks.
1. 50
2. 100
3. 150
4. 200

100. Choice (2)

From the given statement pass percentage is 42% - 12% = 30%

By hypothesis, 30% of x - 20% of x = 10 (marks)

i.e., 10% of x = 10

Therefore, x = 100 marks.

Correct Answer is choice (2)
