# How Many Sweet did Each Child Receive? If

720 sweets were distributed equally amongst the children in such a way that the number of sweets received by each child is 20% of the total number of children. How many sweets did each child receive?

- 12
- 14
- 11
- 15

**Answer: (1) 12**

**Explanation:-
**Let the number of children be X.

The total number of sweets = 720

According to the question,

X x X x 20/100 = 720

X^{2}/5 = 720

X^{2} = 720 x 5

X^{2} = 3600

Square root on both sides,

X = 60

Then, the total number of children is 60

The number of sweets = 60 x 20/100

= 12

Then, the number of sweets each children receive is 12.

Hence, the answer is (1) 12.
