Q.  In an examination, 65 % of the total examinees passed if the number of failures is 420, the total number of examinees is:_________?

a. 500
b. 1200
c. 1000
d. 1625


ANSWER: See Answer
 
Percentage of failure = (100 – 65) % = 35 %

Let the total number of examinees be x.

Then 35 % of x = 420

=> 35/100 × x = 420

=> x =(420 × 100/35) = 1200
