The population of a town is 517530. If one out of every 15 is reported to be literate, find how many literate persons are there in the town.
Population of the town = 517530
`(1/15)` of the population is reported to be literate, i.e., `(1/15)` × 517530 = 517530 ÷ 15
∴ There are 34502 illiterate persons in the given town.
