#### Question 3:

The monthly income of Shaji’s family is Rs. 8,000. The amounts they spent on various things are given below as percent.

#### Answer:

Monthly income of Shaji’s family = Rs 8000

Percentage of amount spent on food = 35%

Percentage of amount spent on clothing, entertainment, education and health = 20%

Percentage of amount spent on repayment of home loan = 20%

Percentage of amount spent on other expenses = 15%

Total percentage of amount spent = 35% + 20% + 20% + 15%

= 90%

Percentage of amount saved = (100 − 90)% = 10%

Percentage of amount spent on food = 35%

Amount spent on food = 35% of Rs 8000

Percentage of amount spent on clothing, entertainment, education and health = 20%

Amount spent on clothing, entertainment, education and health = 20% of Rs 8000

Percentage of amount spent on repayment of home loan = 20%

Amount spent on repayment of home loan = 20% of Rs 8000

Percentage of amount spent on other expenses = 15%

Amount spent on other expenses = 15% of Rs 8000

Percentage of amount saved = (100 − 90)% = 10%

Amount saved = 10% of Rs 8000

#### Question 2:

Babu has Rs 900 with him. He gave 50% of it to Gopu. Gopu gave of what he got to Dipu. Dipu gave of what he got to Babu. How much money does Babu have with him now?

#### Answer:

Total amount with Babu = Rs 900

Percentage amount given by Babu to Gopu = 50%

∴ Amount given by Babu to Gopu = 50% of Rs 900

Percentage amount given by Gopu to Dipu = %

∴ Amount given by Gopu to Dipu = % of Rs 450

Percentage amount given by Dipu to Babu = %

∴ Amount given by Dipu to Babu = % of Rs 150

Since, Babu had Rs 900 with him and he gave Rs 450 to Dipu, the amount left with him is Rs (900 − 450) = Rs 450

Also, Dipu gave Babu Rs 100. Hence, the total amount Babu now has is Rs (450 + 100) = Rs 550.
