Explanatory Answer

Share of Student's marks
The difference between Asha and Bishnu marks = 23 + 34 = 57
The difference between Asha and Bishnu marks(in terms of percentage) = 64% - 52% = 12%
We need to find Geeta's marks who secured, 84%.
Observe that 84 = 7 × 12
Therefore, Geeta's marks = 7 × 57 = 399.


The answer is, "399"
