Data of different states regarding population of states in the year 1998
Total population of the given States = 3276000.
States  Sex and Literacy wise Population Ratio  
Sex  Literacy  
M  F  Literate  Illiterate  
A.P  5  3  2  7 
M.P  3  1  1  4 
Delhi  2  3  2  1 
Goa  3  5  3  2 
Bihar  3  4  4  1 
U.P.  3  2  7  2 
T.N.  3  4  9  4 
1.
What will be the percentage of total number of males in U.P., M.P. and Goa together to the total population of all the given states?
Answer: Option
Explanation:
Number of males in U.P =  3  of (15% of N)  =  3  x  15  x N = 9 x  N  .  
5  5  100  100 
where N = 3276000.
Number of males in M.P =  3  of (20% of N)  =  3  x  20  x N = 15 x  N  .  
4  4  100  100 
Number of males in Goa =  3  of (12% of N)  =  3  x  12  x N = 4.5 x  N  .  
8  8  100  100 
Total number of males in these three states 



Required Percentage = 

x 100  % = 28.5%.

First, find a total number of males.
UP = 3/5 * (15% of 3276000) = 294840
MP = 3/4 * (20% of 3276000) = 491400
GOA = 3/8 * (12% of 3276000) = 147420
Now % = total no. Of males(UP + MP + GOA) divide by 3276000* 100.
= 28.5%.
UP = 3/5 * (15% of 3276000) = 294840
MP = 3/4 * (20% of 3276000) = 491400
GOA = 3/8 * (12% of 3276000) = 147420
Now % = total no. Of males(UP + MP + GOA) divide by 3276000* 100.
= 28.5%.

Why we have to add 3+2 in the first step?

How 3/5 comes at first step?
Ans:
Ratio of males and females in UP = 3 : 2
Number of Males = 3/(3+2) = 3/5 of 15% of N.
Ans:
Ratio of males and females in UP = 3 : 2
Number of Males = 3/(3+2) = 3/5 of 15% of N.

Directly we can take the male percentages to total.
i.e. U.P. Male = 3% of 15% 3276000.
Like this we can take M.P and GOA then we add.
