1
The urban population of Maharashtra and Odisha together is what per cent of the total population of these two states? (Rounded off to two digits after decimal)
» Explain it
B
Total urban population of Maharashtra and Odisha together

2250000 × 17  +  1136000 × 5
45 16

= 850000 + 355000 = 1205000

Total population of Maharashtra and Odisha = 2250000 + 1136000 = 3386000
 
∴ Reqd % =  1205000  × 100 = 35.587 ≈ 35.59%
3386000

Hence, option (B) is correct.

∴ Reqd per cent =  11  × 100 ≈ 39%
28

Hence, option (B) is correct.

What per cent of the total population of West Bengal, Odisha and Madhya Pradesh together is illiterate? (Rounded of to nearest integer)
» Explain it
E

= ( 2480000 × 11  +  1136000 × 5  +  1642000 × 1 )
31 16 4

= 880000 + 355000 + 410500 = 1645500
 
∴Reqd % =  1645500  × 100
2480000 + 1136000 + 1642000

1645500  × 100 =  164550  = 31.29% ≈ 31%
5258000 5258

Hence, option (E) is correct.

4
What is the difference between the number of graduates from Madhya Pradesh and Uttaranchal?
» Explain it
B
Reqd difference

( 1642000 × 3  ×  45  –  248000 × 3  ×  44 )
4 100 4 100

= 554175 – 81840 = 472335

16 100 31 100 8 100

11360 × 11 × 38  +  24800 × 20 × 42  +  22500 × 5 × 48
16 31 8

= 296780 + 672000 + 675000 = 1643780

Hence, option (C) is correct.
