Question:

A packet contained 450 chocolates.60% of the chocolates were distributed to the students of the fifth standard.How many chocolates were distributed?How many chocolates remained in the packet?

Basic idea:

In this problem a packet is containing 450 chocolates.60% of them were distributed to the students who are studying 5th.Now we need to find no of chocolates distributed and also we have to find the remaining number of chocolates after distribution.To solve this problem first we have to find the number of chocolates distributed.For that we have to find 60% of 450 chocolates.After that we have to subtract the distributed chocolates from the total number of chocolates.

Solution:

Total number of chocolates  =   450

Percentage of chocolates distributed = 60%

Number of chocolates distributed =  60% of Total number of chocolates

=  60% of 450

=  (60/100)   x 450

=   (60 x450) /100

In numerator and denominator 2 zero will get canceled.

So that we will get

=  (6x45)

=  270

Number of chocolates distributed = 270

Number of remaining = Total number of - Number of chocolates distributed

= 450 - 270

= 180
