Example #8

If N is equals to 20% of M and P is equals to 30% of N, then what is the 40% of P?

- 0.024 M
- 0.024 N
- 0.06 M
- 0.06 N

Show Answer Show How to Solve Open Rough Workspace

**Answer:**Option (A)

**How to Solve**

N = 20% of M = ( 20 / 100 ) x M = 0.2 M.

P = 30% of N = ( 30 / 100 ) x N = 0.3 N = 0.3 x 0.2 M.

So, here 40% of P = ( 40 / 100 ) x P = ( 0.4 )( 0.3 )( 0.2 M ) = 0.024 M.

X = 153 x 100 / 34

X = 15300 / 34 = 450.

**How to Solve**

Ajit’s share : Bimal’s share : Chandan’s share

1500 x 12 : 2000 x 9 : 2250 x 8

= 180 : 180 : 180

= 1 : 1 : 1

Therefore, each of them gets the profit 1200 / 3 = Rs.400/-.
