A Has Some Mangoes. He Sold 40% More than He Ate. If He Sold 70 Mangoes, How Many Did He Eat? - Mathematics
A has some mangoes. He sold 40% more than he ate. If he sold 70 mangoes, how many did he eat?
Let he ate x mangoes.
Then, sold mangoes = x + 40% of x
But given sold mangoes = 70
∴ x + 40% of x = 70
⇒ x + `40/100`x = 70
⇒ `(14x)/10`= 70
⇒ x = 70` xx10/14` = 50
Hence, we ate 50 mangoes.
