Explanation:

If the percentage production of P type cars in 2001

= Percentage production of P type cars in 2000

= 30%.

then, number of P type cars produced in 2001

= 30% of 4,40,000

= 1,32,000.

According to me, this problem have no answer.

When we choose 132000 as the answer the total of cars produced will less than 440000 or the exact number = (100%-40%)x440000 + 132000 = 396000.

And 30% of 396000 = 118800. so 132000 is not 30% of total cars produced in 2001 (it is 33,3%).

To find the right number so P type cars produced in 2001 have exact 30% of all company in 2001 below are the equation.

(100%-40%)x440000 + 30%xA = A.

We must find the total cars produced (A). The answer A = 377142,8571. 30% of A = 113142,8571. So the answer should 113142,8571.

@Yamini : 30% of 4,40,000 = (440000/100) * 30 = 4400 * 30 = 132000.

@Abhinav, because we need to calculate the cars produced in 2001.

Abhinav shrivastava said:

Why we multiplied by 4, 40000 if we have to calculate the car for year 2000 which is same as for the year 2001?
