    It’s good. …but these are very simple examples. …we need some more tough questions and it’s short cuts

    • revathi says:

      (52% of 8540. ) + (15% of 7860) = x + 2540

      (50. + 2 )% of 8540 = 4270+170.8 = 4440.8

      (10+5)% of 7860 = 786+393= 1179

      Now, 4440.8+1178=x+2540

      5619.8 – 2540 = x

      3079=x
