Word Problem 16
Problem 16: A medical student has to secure 40% marks to pass. He gets 40 marks ans fails by 80 marks. The maximum marks are;
a. 500 b, 400 c. 200 d. 300
Marks calculation —
We suppose total marks are ‘x’
Since given that pass marks are 40% of total marks;
But the student gets 40 marks and fails by 80 marks . This means he would have been passed had he got 80 more marks !
So, total marks are 300
