If 40 is subtracted from 60% of a number, the result is 50. Find the number.

Given that

40 is subtracted from 60 % of number and the result obtained is 50

We need to find the number

Solution

Let the number from which 60% gets subtracted be =X

As per the given condition, the equation becomes

60% (X)-40 = 50

=( 60/100 ) x – 40 = 50

= 6/10X = 50+40

=6/10X = 90

=X = 10/6 x 90

=X = 900/6

=X = 150

If 40 is subtracted from 60 % of 150 and the result obtained will be 50
