Percentage Distribution of Total Expenditure of a Company

4.
If the interest on loans amounted to Rs. 2.45 crores then the total amount of expenditure on advertisement, taxes and research and development is?
Rs. 7 crores
Rs. 5.4 crores
Rs. 4.2 crores
Rs. 3 crores
Explanation:

Let the total expenditure be Rs. x crores.

Then, 17.5% of x = 2.45         x = 14.

Total expenditure = Rs. 14 crores.

and so, the total expenditure on advertisement, taxes and Research and Development

= Rs. [(15 + 10 + 5)% of 14] crores

= Rs. [30% of 14] crores

= Rs. 4.2 crores.

(interest on loans is 17.5%),( total expenditure on advertisement, taxes and Research and Development is 30%).
17.5 = 2.45,
30 = ?(x),
x = 4.2.
