Just another very easy problem:
In an exam, \(5%\) applicants were ineligible and \(85%\) of eligible belonged to A category. If \(4275\) eligible belong to other categories, how many applied?
If you google you will be spoiling your fun :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.285/100 * x are category A and eligible 10085 = 15 so 15/100*x are other category and eligible so, 15% of (95% of x) so 15/100 * 95/100* x 0.1425x but the question tells us that other category guyz are 4275 so 0.1425x = 4275 x= 4275/0.1425 x = 30,000 @FoolForMath i solved it :)
