As we know, A = 6 x B or A = 6B.
So, B is less than A by 5B.
Required percentage is :
(5B / 100)% = (5B / 6B x 100)% = 250 / 3 % .

5. shrek says:

Example 1 not clear. Please elaborate.

• check it, Required percentage is = ( 4% x 100 / 5% )% = [( 4 / 100) x 100 / (4 / 100) ]%
= ( 4 x 100 x 100 / 100 x 5 ) % = 80%.

6. meghana says:

example 10 is not clear

• Mitesh says:

If it says that if some number is n times higher than another a\number it \s menas its (n-1)% of that number

Like p is 6 times heigher than q itt menas p = 500% of q

same q is 9 times higher than p it means q = 800% of p

9. Vishal says:

how calculate 65% of 600 +67% of 600 in short

• 65 x 600 + 67 x 600 / 100 x 100 = 390 + 402 = 792

10. Brindha says:

16500% of 192 plz tell in shortcut

• 16500 x 192/100 = 165 x 192 = Multiply 165 x 1 and add two zero to the right side of result
than Multiply 165 x 9 and add one zero
than Multiply 165 x 2 after all add three out come result.

165 x 192 = 16500 + 14850 + 330 = 31680..

• marmik patel says:

Directly its 165 times of 192. No need to explain that
