Detailed Solution for MCQ: Percentages - 2 - Question 3

Let the first part = x
Second part = y
30% of y – 75% of x = 12 ----(1)
50% of y – 80% of x = 56 ----(2)
0.60 × Eq2 – Eq1
75% of x – 48% of x = 0.60 × 56 – 12
27% of x = 21.60

30% of y – 75% of 80 = 12

y = 240
So the answer = 80 + 240 = 320
Hence, Option B is correct.
