1.

A batsman scored 110 runs which included 3 boundaries and 8 sixes. What percent of his total score did he make by running between the wickets?

Answer: Option

Explanation:

Number of runs made by running = 110 - (3 x 4 + 8 x 6)

= 110 - (60)

= 50.

Required percentage = | 50 | x 100 | % = 45 | 5 | % | |

110 | 11 |

Actually, it converts from 500/11 to 45*(5/11) to a mixed fraction by quotient* remainder/divisor.

For eg: By dividing 500/11 we get quotient =45, remainder=5 divisor =11.

Then we form 45* (5\11).

For eg: By dividing 500/11 we get quotient =45, remainder=5 divisor =11.

Then we form 45* (5\11).

Total run = 110.

Eight sixes = 48 run,

Three boundaries = 12run,

So, running between wicket=(110-48+12) = 50.

therefore, percentage of 50 run =(50/110)*100 = 45 * 5/11.

Eight sixes = 48 run,

Three boundaries = 12run,

So, running between wicket=(110-48+12) = 50.

therefore, percentage of 50 run =(50/110)*100 = 45 * 5/11.

The total run is - 110

Boundaries(4's) - 3.

Sixes- 8.

Therefore, (4*3)+(6*8)= 12+48 = 60.

Running between the wickets means (1's or 2's which they get)

Therefore need to know the running b/w wickets:

110 - 60 =50.

And the percentage for running b/w wickets is;

= 50/110 * 100,

= 500/11,

= 45 * 5/11%.

Boundaries(4's) - 3.

Sixes- 8.

Therefore, (4*3)+(6*8)= 12+48 = 60.

Running between the wickets means (1's or 2's which they get)

Therefore need to know the running b/w wickets:

= 500/11,

= 45 * 5/11%.

@Sanchita.

Here, 1 six have 6 runs and 1 boundary means 4 runs.

Total runs 110.

3 boundaries=3*4=12.

8 sixes =8*6=48.

Total score = 110-(12+48)

=110-60.

=50 total runs.

Percentage =50/110 * 100,

= 500/11.

= 45.45 mixed fraction lo rayaga 45*5/11.

3 boundaries=3*4=12.

8 sixes =8*6=48.

Total score = 110-(12+48)

=110-60.

=50 total runs.

Percentage =50/110 * 100,

= 500/11.

= 45.45 mixed fraction lo rayaga 45*5/11.

Out of 110 Runs, he scored 60 runs by hitting the boundaries. Also, it is mentioned to calculate what percentage of total runs will he score by running between the wickets.

Am I right? Anyone, Please clarify.
