Ex 8.1, 5 (Method 1) If Chameli had Rs 600 left after spending 75% of her money, how much did she have in the beginning?
Given,
∴ Percentage of Money spent = 75%
∴ Percentage of Money left = 100% − Percentage of money spent
= 100 − 75
= 25%
Let Total Money = x
Given that
Money left = Rs 600
∴ Percentage of money left = (𝑀𝑜𝑛𝑒𝑦 𝐿𝑒𝑓𝑡)/(𝑇𝑜𝑡𝑎𝑙 𝑀𝑜𝑛𝑒𝑦) × 100
25 = 600/𝑥×100
x = 600/25 × 100
x = 600 × 100/25
x = 600 × 4
x = 2400
∴ Total Money = x = Rs 2400
Ex 8.1, 5 (Method 2) If Chameli had Rs 600 left after spending 75% of her money, how much did she have in the beginning?
Given,
∴ Percentage of Money spent = 75%
∴ Percentage of Money left = 100% − Percentage of money spent
= 100 − 75
= 25%
Money left = Total Money × Percentage of Money left
600 = Total Money × 25%
600 = Total Money × 25/100
600 × 100/25 = Total Money
Total Money = 600 × 100/25
Total Money = 600 × 4
Total Money = Rs 2400
