## Percentage Solved Questions For IBPS, SBI and Other Bank Exams - Page 2

**Question 1**

The percentage of numbers from 11 to 75 which are divided by 5 or 7 is:

a)31 b)35 c)36 d)41

**Answer :** a)31

**Solution:**

Clearly, the numbers which divided by 5 or 7 from 11 to 75 are 14, 15, 20, 21, 25, 28, 30, 35, 40, 42, 45, 49, 50, 55, 56, 60, 63, 65, 70, 75.

The number of such numbers = 20

Total numbers from 11 to 75 = 65

Then the required percentage = (20/65) x 100 = 30.76% = 31 %

Hence the answer is 31%

**Question 2**

If P is X% of Y and Q is Y% of X then the relationship between P and Q is :

a)P < Q b)P > Q c)cannot be determined d)none of these

**Answer :**d) none of these

**Solution:**

P = X% of Y = (X/100)xY

= (XY/100)

= (Y/100)xX

= Y% of X = Q

i.e., P = Q

Thus the relationship between P and Q is P = Q.

**Question 3**

If A has weight 9kg more than B and his weight is 56% of the sum of their weights then their weights are :

a)31,40 b)33,42 c)36,45 d)41,50

**Answer :**b) 33,42

**Solution:**

Let B's weight be X then A's weight is X+9.

And,

X+9 = 56% of X+X+9

= 56/100 (2X+9)

25(X+9)= 14(2X+9)

3X = 99 => X=33 and X+9 = 42

So, their weights are 33kg,42kg

**Question4**

What will be the Y% of 25 when 24% of X = Y

a)16% of X b)26% of X c)36% of X d)6% of X

**Answer :**d) 6% of X

**Solution:**

Given that,

24% of X = Y i.e, 24X/100 = Y

and, Y% of 25 = 25Y/100

= (25Y/100) x (24X/100)

= (1/4) x (24X/100)

= (6/100)x X

= 6% of X

Hence the answer is 6% of X.
