In a maternity centre, 5% of all the childbirth cases result in twins. What is the approximate percentage of twins out of total children born?
Let there be x number of birth cases.
Thus, the number of birth cases of twins = (5*x)/100 = x/20
So the total number of children born are = x + (x/20)(since in cases of twins there is an additional child) = 21x/20
Total number of twin born = (x/20)* 2 = x/10
percentage of twins in the total population born = ((x/10)/(21x/20)) * 100 = 9.5 %
