Find the population of village S if the population of village X below poverty line in 1997 is 12160.

Answer: Option

16:11 means percentage of X and percentage of S.

16% X =32000.

then 11% S be y.

y = (32000*11)/16 = 22000.

16% X =32000.

then 11% S be y.

y = (32000*11)/16 = 22000.

Instead, you can just calculate the total population and arrive at population simply. The question contains unnecessary information!

TOTAL POPULATION=200000 ;S=200000*11/100=22000.

TOTAL POPULATION=200000 ;S=200000*11/100=22000.
