Q:

One-third of the boys and one-half of the girls of a college participated in a sport. If the number of participating students is 300, out of which 100 are boys. What is the total number of students in the college?

A) 500 B) 300
C) 600 D) 700

Answer:   D) 700



Explanation:

Let number of boys in the school = x

Let number of girls in the school = y

Number of students participated in the sports = 300

Out of which boys = 100

but given number of boys participated in sports = x/3

=> x/3 = 100

=> x = 300

Remaining girls = 300 - 100 = 200

=> y/2 = 200

=> y = 400

Therefore, total number of students in the school = x + y = 300 + 400 = 700
