# Basic Math MCQ 2 (Percent of a number added to other number ,result is same, what is the number?)

MCQ2 : 85% of a number is added to 24, the result is the same number. Find the number?

a) 150            b) 130        c) 140            d) 160

Solution:

Let the number is ‘x’

85% of the number ​$$= \frac{85}{100}\times x$$

By given condition if 85% of ‘x’ is added to 24 then result is again the same number i-e ‘x’

Mathematically,

$\frac{85}{100}\times x + 24 = x$

This gives;

$\frac{85}{100}\times x=x-24$

$85x=100(x-24)$

$85x=100x-2400$

$100x-85x=2400$

$15x=2400$

$x= \frac{2400}{15}=160$

So the number is 160
