In an exam a student required 40% of total marks to pass. If Rupa gets 185 marks and fails by 15 marks , find the total marks?
Here is the answer to your question.
Let the total marks be x.
Pass mark = 40% of x
Rupa gets 185 marks and fails by 15 marks.
∴ Pass mark = 185 + 15
⇒ 40% of x = 200
Thus, the total mark in the exam is 500.
Hope! You got the answer.
