Q:

405 sweets were distributed equally among children in such a way that the number of sweets received by each child is 20% of the total number of children. How many sweets did each child recieve ?

A) 9 B) 10
C) 11 D) 12

Answer:   A) 9



Explanation:

Let the total number of children be x. 

Then, x * (20% of x) = 405  

=> x * 20x/100 = 405 

15x2 = 405 

 

=> x=45 

 

Number of sweets received by each child = 20% of 45 = 9.
