If in 1998, the population of villages Y and V increase by 10% each and the percentage of population below poverty line remains unchanged for all the villages, then find the population of village V below poverty line in 1998, given that the population of village Y in 1997 was 30000.

Answer: Option

Explanation:

Population of village Y in 1997 = 30000 (given).

Let the population of village V in 1997 be *v*.

Then, 15 : 10 = 30000 : v v = |
30000 x 10 | = 20000. |

15 |

Now, population of village V in 1998 = 20000 + (10% of 20000) = 22000.

Population of village V below poverty line in 1998 = 58% of 22000 = 12760.

Here it is not mentioned that the population figure of 30000 is for the village Y. while solving this problem if we take 30000 as the total population we get 1914 as the answer.
