# Percentage - Excercise 1 - Q5

## Question

i. 1100 boys and 700 girls are examined in a test; 42% of the boys and 30% of the girls pass. The percentage of the total who failed is :

• 58
• 62 *2/3
• 64
• 67
Number of students passed =(42/100$\times$1100)+(30/100$\times$700) - (462 + 210) = 672.
Percentage failure = (1128/1800$\times$100) = (62$\times$2/3)
