 Region Estimates of population (in crores) Worker Population Ratio Estimated No. of Workers (in crores) Rural 71.88 41.9 71.88/100 xx 41.9 = 30.12 Urban 28.52 33.7 ? Total 100.40 39.5 ?

#### Solution

 Region Estimates of population (in crores) Worker Population Ratio Estimated No. of Workers (in crores) Rural 71.88 41.9 71.88/100 xx 41.9 = 30.12 Urban 28.52 33.7 28.52/100 xx 33.7 = 9.61124 Total 100.40 39.5 100.40/100 xx 39.5 = 39.658

Estimated no. of workers in urban areas = 28.52/100 xx 33.7 = 9.61124

Total workforce in India = 100.40/100 xx 39.5 = 39.658
