# In an institute, 60% of the students are boys and the rest are girls. Further 15% of the boys and 7.5% of the girls are getting a fee waiver. If the number of those getting a fee waiver is 90, find the total number of students getting 50% concessions if it is given that 50% of those not getting a fee waiver are eligible to get half fee concession?

A. 360

B. 280

C. 320

D. 330

E. 350

**Answer: Option D **

__Solution(By Examveda Team)__

Let us assume there are 100 students in the institute. Then, number of boys = 60

And, number of girls = 40

Further, 15% of boys get fee waiver = 9 boys

7.5% of girls get fee waiver = 3 girls

Total = 12 students who gets fee waiver

But, here given 90 students are getting fee waiver. So we compare

12 = 90

So, 1 = $$\frac{{90}}{{12}}$$ = 7.5

Now number of students who are not getting fee waiver = 51 boys and 37 girls

50% concession = 25.5 boys and 18.5 girls (i.e. total 44)

Hence, required students = 44 × 7.5 = 330

A. $$\frac{1}{4}$$

C. $$\frac{1}{2}$$

D. $$\frac{2}{3}$$

60%*15%+40%*7.5%=12%

12%=90

1=750

750-90=660

50%= 330

let total students = x

then

(15/100*60/100*x)+(7.5/100*40/100*x)=90

900x+300x=90,0000

x=750

number of students who are not getting fee waiver=750-90=660

50% of those not getting a fee waiver are eligible=660/2=330

required students=330
