# How many Percent Student not to Get the Scholarship? If

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 %**

**Explanation:-**

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

Then, Let the number of boys = 3 X & number of girls 2 X.

Scholarship holder boys = 20 %

Then, the 20 % of boys = 3 X x 20/100

Scholarship holder boys = 3 X/5

Scholarship holder girls = 25 %

25 % of the girls = 2 X x 25/100

= X/2

Total students who get scholarship = 3 X/5 + X/2

= (6 X + 5 X)/10

= 11 X/10

The percentage of scholarship holder student = 11 X x 100/10 x 5 X

= 22 %

The percentage of students who do not get scholarship = 100 – 22 = 78%

Hence, the answer is (2) 78 %.
