Question 1 : In a class, 60% of the students are girls and the rest are boys. There are 30 more girls than boys. If 68% of the students, including 30 boys,pass an examination, the percentage of the girls who do not pass is [TITA]
Given that there are 60 % girls and 40 % boys
It is also given that there are 30 more girls than boys.
So, (60 % - 40 %) of total class strength = 30 students
=> 20 % of total class strength = 30 students
=> Total class strength = 30 x 5 = 150 students
It is also given that 68% of students pass the the examination, which includes 30 boys
So, Number of students passed = 68% of Total students
=> Number of students passed = x 150 = 102 students
=> Since the number of boys passed is 30,
=> Number of girls passed = 102 - 30 = 72
Total number of girls = x 150 = 90
Total number of girls = Girls who passed + Girls who did not pass
Girls who did not pass = 90 - 72 = 18
Percentage of girls who did not pass = x 100 = 20 %
The question is "In a class, 60% of the students are girls and the rest are boys. There are 30 more girls than boys. If 68% of the students, including 30 boys,pass an examination, the percentage of the girls who do not pass is [TITA] "
