Percentage Distribution of Total Expenditure of a Company

2.

If the expenditure on advertisement is 2.10 crores then the difference between the expenditure on transport and taxes is?

Answer: Option

Explanation:

Let the total expenditure be Rs. *x* crores.

Then, 15% of x = 2.10 x = |
2.10 x 100 | = 14. | ||

15 |

Total expenditure = Rs. 14 crores

and so, the difference between the expenditures on transport and taxes

= Rs. [(12.5 - 10)% of 14] crores

= Rs. [2.5% of 14] crores

= Rs. 0.35 crores

= Rs. 35 lakhs

I.e 15% = 2.10,

15/100= 2.10,

Cross multiply.

100 * 2.10=15%,

210=15%,

Divide by 15,

%= 14.

15/100= 2.10,

Cross multiply.

100 * 2.10=15%,

210=15%,

Divide by 15,

%= 14.
