**Question 3: A football team won 9 matches out of the total number of matches they played. If their win percentage was 45, then how many matches did they play in all?**

**Answer:**

Let total matches = x

Matches won by a team = 9

**Question 4: In a straight student election, Rahul got 66% of the votes polled. If the defeated student got 187 votes, find the total number of votes polled.**

**Answer:**

Rahul got votes in student election = 66%

Defeated student got votes = (100 – 66%) = 34%

Let the total number of votes = **X**

According to given,

34% of x = 187

⇒ 34/100 × **X** = 187

⇒ *X* = 11 × 50

⇒ *X* = 550

Hence total number of votes = 550

**Question 5: 36 kg of gunpowder contains 27 kg nitre, 5.4 kg charcoal and rest sulphur. Find the percentage content of sulphur in the gunpowder.**

**Answer:**

Total mixture of gunpowder = 36 kg

Quantity of nitre = 27 kg

Quantity of charcoal = 5.4 kg

Rest quantity of sulphur = 36 – (27 + 5.4)kg

= 36 – 32.4 = 3.6 kg

∴ Percentage of sulphur = (3.6 × 100)/36 % = 10 %

Number of passed students in the class = 75% of x

(75/100) *X = *75*X*/100

According to given,

⇒ x = 40

Hence the total number of students in class = 40

**Answer:**

C.P. of one parrot = ₹30

C.P. of 20 parrots = ₹30 × 20 = ₹600

The Number of parrots flew away = 2

Number of rest of the parrots = 20 – 2 = 18

Then S.P. of remaining parrots = ₹40 × 18 = ₹ 720

Profit = S.P. – C.P. = ₹720 – ₹600 = ₹120
