# what will be the percentage?

The ratio of the number of boys and girls in a school is 3:2. If 20 % of the boys and 25% of the girls are scholarship holders, then the percentage of the students who do not get the scholarship is:

- 68%
- 78%
- 82%
- 72%

**Answer: (2) 78%**

**Solution:-**

The ratio of the number of boys and girls in a school = 3: 2

Le the number of boys in a school be 3 X and the number of girls be 2 Y

If 20% of the boys and 25% of the girls are scholarship holders,

Then, scholarship holders boys = 3 X x 20/100

= 3 X/5

Scholarship holders girls = 2 Y x 25/100

= Y/2

Then, the percentage of students scholarship holders = (3 /5 + 1/2) x 100/(3 + 2)

= 11 x 100/10 x 5

= 11 x 2

= 22 %

Thus, the percentage of students who do not get scholarship = 100 – 22

= 78%

Hence, the correct answer is option (2) 78%.
