This question appeared in the Quant section of the TANCET 2012 Paper. An easy percents question.

Question

If S is 150 percent of T, then T is what percent of S + T?

1. 33.33%

2. 40%

3. 75%

4. 80%

5. 85%

Correct Answer: Choice 2. 40%

Explanatory Answer

The easiest way to solve this question is by assuming a value of T.

Take T to be 100.

Therefore, S = 150% of T = 150% of 100 = 150.

So, S + T = 150 + 100 = 250.

We need to find out T as a percent of S + T

i.e., (100 / 250)* 100 = 40%
