Q. 99. The sum of 35% of a number and 12% of the same number is 3055. What is the 72% of

that number?

(a) 4685 (b) 4680 (c) 4675 (d) 4670 (e) None of these

Ans: (b) 4680

Explanation:

Let the number be x

Then, 35x/100 + 12x/100 = 3055

i.e. 35x + 12x/100 =3055

47x = 305500

So, x = 305500/47 = 6500
