**A school has only four classes that contain 10, 20, 30 and 40 students respectively. The pass percentage of these classes are 20%, 30%, 60% and 100% respectively. Find the pass percentage of the entire school.**

A. 56%

B. 76%**C. 66%**

D. 34%

**Asst PESSI LHRD-21**

Total students in four classes = 10+20+30+40 = 100

Number of pass students in first class = 10 x 20 / 100 = 2

Number of pass students in second class = 20 x 30 / 100 = 6

Number of pass students in third class = 30 x 60 / 100 = 18

Number of pass students in fourth class = 40 x 100 / 100 = 40

The number of pass students are 2+6+18+40 = 66 out of total of 100.

Hence, 66 / 100 x 100 = 66%.

A. 35%

B. 40%**C. 65%**

D. 52%

**Asst S&GAD-20**

Let the number of girls = x

So the number of boys = 2x

Total students = x + 2x = 3x

Percentage of boys failed = 30%

Number of boys failed = 0.3 × 2x = 0.6x

Percentage of girls failed = 45%

Number of girls failed = 0.45 × x = 0.45x

Total students failed = 0.6x + 0.45x = 1.05x

Total students passed = 3x – 1.05x = 1.95x

Percentage of passed students = 1.95x ÷ 3x × 100

= 0.65 × 100 = 65%
