A man travelled 60 km by car and 240 km by train. Find what per cent of total journey did he travel by car and what per cent by train?

Answer :

Given, distance covered by car = 60km and


Distance covered by train = 240km


Total journey = 60 + 240 = 300km


Let x% of total journey is travelled by car


x% of 300 = 60


= 60


x = 20%


Let y% of total journey is travelled by train


y% of 300 = 240


= 240


y = 80%


Hence, 20% distance travelled by car and 80% distance travelled by train.
