Q. 64.2( 214 Votes )

If 60% people in a city like cricket, 30% like football and the remaining like other games, then what per cent of the people like other games? If the total number of people are 50 lakh, find the exact number who like each type of game.

Answer :

Per cent of the people who like other games = (100 – (60 + 30))%

= 10%


Now, number of people who like cricket = 60% of 50 lakh


Number of people who like cricket = (60/100) × 50 = 30 lakh


Number of people who like football = 30% of 50


Number of people who like football = (30/100) × 50 = 15

∴ Remaining people who like other games = 50 – 45 = 5 lakh.
