Q.  In a group of 80 children and 10 youngsters, each child got sweets that are 15% of the total number of children and each youngster got sweets that are 25% of the total number of children. How many sweets were there?

a. 1160
b. 1100
c. 1080
d. 1210
e. None of these


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Number of sweets each child got = 15% of 80 = 15/100 * 80 = 12.

Number of sweets 80 children got = 80 * 12 = 960.
Number of sweets each youngster got = 25% of 80 = 25/100 * 80 = 20.
Number of sweets 10 youngsters got = 10 * 20 = 200.
Total number of sweets = 960 + 200 = 1160.
