Number of boys = total number of students â€“ number of girls

= 2400 – 960 = 1440 boys

7. Aman obtained 410 marks out of 500 in CBSE XII examination while his brother Anish gets 536 marks out of 600 in IX class examination. Find whose performance is better?

Solution:

Given Aman’s marks in CBSEÂ XII = 410/500

Percentage of marks obtained by AmanÂ = (410/500)Â Ã—Â 100

= 82%

Given that Anish’s marks in CBSE IX = 536/600

Percentage of marks obtained by Anish = (536/600) Ã— 100

= 89.33%

Clearly 89.33 > 82

Therefore, Anish’s performance is better than Aman’s
