Basic idea:

In a school there are 1200 students.15% of the students went on an excursion.Now we have to find the number of students who had joined the excursion.To solve this problem we have find 15% of total number of students.That is 12% of 1200.


Total no of students in a school =  $1200  <br><br>

Percentage of students who went for excursion =15%

No of students who went for

excursion                              =  15% of total number of students

                                          =   15% of 1200  <br><br>

                                          =   (15/100) x 1200

                                          =   (15 x 1200)/100

                                          =    15 x 12

                                          =    180
