What percentage of numbers from 1 to 70 have 1 or 9 in the unit's digit?
Clearly, the numbers which have 1 or 9 in the unit's digit, have squares that end in the digit 1. Such numbers from 1 to 70 are 1, 9, 11, 19, 21, 29, 31, 39, 41, 49, 51, 59, 61, 69.

Two tailors X and Y are paid a total of Rs. 550 per week by their employer. If X is paid 120 percent of the sum paid to Y, how much is Y paid per week?
X+ y=Rs. 550
x = 120% of y
120% * y+ y =550
120/100*y+y = 550
6y+5y/5 = 550
11/5y = 550
11y = 550*5
y = 250
If 20% of a = b, then b% of 20 is the same as:
20% of a = b => (20/100)a = b
b% of 20 =(b/100) x 20 = (20a/100) x (1/100) x (20) = 4a/100 = 4% of a.

In an election between two candidates, one got 55% of the total valid votes, 20% of the votes were invalid. If the total number of votes was 7500, the number of valid votes that the other candidate got, was:
Total number of votes = 7500
Given that 20% of Percentage votes were invalid
=> Valid votes = 80%
Total valid votes = 7500*(80/100)
1st candidate got 55% of the total valid votes.
Hence the 2nd candidate should have got 45% of the total valid votes
=> Valid votes that 2nd candidate got = total valid votes x (45/100)
7500*(80/100)*(45/100) = 2700
