# What will be the Percentage of Girls and Boys Attended?

A class of 50 girls and 70 boys sponsored a musical program. If 40% of the girls and 50% of the boys attended. Approximately what percent attended?

- 48%
- 42%
- 44%
- 46%

**Answer: (4) 46%
Explanation:-
**Number of girls in a class = 50

40% of the girls = 50 x 40/100 = 20

Number of the boy in a class = 70

50% of the boy = 70 x 50/100 = 35

Total students in a class = 50 + 70 = 120

Total attended students in a class = 20 + 35 = 55

Percentage of attended students = 55 x 100/120

= 45.83% = 46% (approximately)

Hence, attended students are 46%.
