__Solution:__

**1.**Let the total number of mangoes = x

Then, 6% of x=54

=> (6 / 100) ร x = 54

=> x = (54 / 6) ร 100 = 900

Hence, total number of mangoes = 900

**Answer: a)**

**2.**Let the total number of students in the school = x

Then, 25% of x = 310

=> (25 / 100) ร x = 310

=> x = [(310ร100) / 25] = 1240

:. Number of boys = 1240-310 = 930

**Answer: d)**

**3.**Let the total number of children = x

Then, (720 / x) = 20% of x = (20 / 100) ร x = (x / 5)

=> xยฒ = 720 ร 5 = 3600

=> x = 60

Thus, number of sweets each child received = (720 / 60) = 12

**Answer: d)**

**4.**Let the salary of Rajesh be Rs. x

Then, (3 / 5) of (16% of x) = 4320

=> (3 / 5) ร (16 / 100) ร x = 4320

=> x = [(4320 ร 100 ร 5) / (16 ร 3)] = 45000

Hence, the salary of Rajesh is Rs. 45000.

**Answer: a)**

**5.**Let the salary of Deepa be Rs. x

Then, 80% f 8% of x = 2240

=> (80 / 100) ร (8 / 100) ร x = 2240

=> x = [(2240 ร 100 ร 100) / (80 ร 8)] = 35000

Hence, the salary of Deepa = Rs. 35000

**Answer: c)**

**6.**Let the maximum marks be x.

Then, 36% of x = 150 + 30 = 180

=> (36 / 100) ร x = 180

=> x = [(180 ร 100) / 36] = 500

**Answer: c)**

**7.**Number of girls in a college = 2000 ร (36 / 100) = 720

Then, boys = 2000 โ 720 = 1280

Each girlโs monthly fees = 480 ร (75 / 100) = Rs. 360

Hence, total amount of fees both boys and girls

=(1280 ร4 80 + 720 ร 360)

= Rs. 873600

**Answer: d)**

**8.**Let the total marks of the exam be x

Then, x ร (54 / 100) = 456 – 24

= x ร (54 / 100) = 432

X = [(432 ร 100) / 54] = 800

Minimum passing marks

= 800 ร (34 / 100) = 272

Hence, required more marks get by Raman = 456 โ 272 = 184

**Answer: b)**

**9.**Let the total number of students=x

Then, (100 – 90)% of x = 240

=> (10 / 100) ร x = 240

=> x = [(240 ร 100) / 10] = 2400

**Answer: b)**

**10.**Number of sweets each student gets

= 15% of 60 = (15 / 100) ร 60 = 9
