# What is 30% of That Number? If

When 56 is subtracted from a number, it is reduced to 86 percent. What is 30% of that number?

- 160
- 90
- 110
- 120

Explanation:-

Let the number is X

According to the question,

X – 56 = X x 86/100

X – 56 = 43 X/50

X – 43 X /50 = 56

50 X – 43 X = 56 x 50

7 X = 56 x 50

X = 8 x 50

X = 400

Then, 30 % of 400 = 400 x 30/100

= 4 x 30

= 120

Hence, the answer is (4) 120.
