Basic idea:

In this problem a seller has bought 1200 mangoes.7% of the mangoes were rotten.We have to find the number of mangoes become root.To solve this problem we have to find 7% of total number of mangoes.Here total number of mangoes is 1200.

No of mangoes bought by fruit seller  =  1200

Percentage of mangoes rotten = 7%

No of mangoes which were rotten  =   7% of total mangoes

=  (7/100)  x 1200

=   (7 x 1200)/100

=   (7 x 12)

=   84 mangoes

No of mangoes which were rotten = 84 mangoes
