# Model 11 Percentage With Ratios Practice Questions Answers Test With Solutions & More Shortcuts

#### PERCENTAGE PRACTICE TEST [11 - EXERCISES]

Question : 1 [SSC CGL Tier-I 2010]

If 60% of A = \$3/4\$ of B, then A : B is

a) 4 : 5

b) 5 : 4

c) 20 : 9

d) 9 : 20

\${A × 60}/100 = B × 3/4\$

A × \$3/5 = B × 3/4\$

\$A/B = 3/4 × 5/3\$ = 5 : 4

Question : 2 [SSC CGL 2013]

The prices of a school bag and a shoe are in the ratio 7 : 5. The price of a school bag is Rs.200 more than the price of a shoe. Then the price of a shoe is

a) Rs.500

b) Rs.1,200

c) Rs.700

d) Rs.200

7x – 5x = 200

2x = 200 ⇒ x = 100

Price of a pair of shoes

= 5x = 5 × 100 = Rs.500

Question : 3 [SSC DEO 2009]

The ratio of the number of boys and girls in a college is 3 : 2. If 20% of boys and 25% of girls are adults, the percentage of those students who are not adults, is

a) 78%

b) 82.5%

c) 67.5%

d) 58%

Let the number of boys and girls in the college be 3x and 2x respectively.

Number of minor boys = \$3x × 80/100 = {12x}/5\$

Number of minor girls = \$2x × 75/100 = {3x}/2\$

Total number of minor students = \${12x}/5 + {3x}/2\$

= \${24x + 15x}/10 = {39x}/10 \$

Required percentage = \${39x}/{10 × 5x} × 100\$ = 78%

(As total students = 3x + 2x)

Question : 4 [SSC CHSL 2011]

When 60% of a number is subtracted from another number, the second number reduces to its 52%; the ratio of the first number to the second number is :

a) 5: 4

b) 4: 5

c) 5: 3

d) 6: 5

Let the first number be x and second number be y.

y - \${60x}/100 = {52y}/100\$

100y – 60x = 52y

48y = 60x

\$x/y = 48/60 = 4/5\$ or 4 : 5

Question : 5

If 15% of x is same as 20 % of y then x : y is

a) 6 : 5

b) 3 : 4

c) 5 : 4

d) 4 : 3

\$x × 15/100 = y × 20/100\$

x × 15 = y × 20

\$x/y = 20/15 = 4/3\$ = 4 : 3
