Question

# On a recent survey, 40% of those surveyed indicated that they preferred walking to running. If 540 people preferred walking, find the total people were surveyed?

- 1340
- 1350
- 1360
- 1370

Hint:

### 1. When a certain quantity is divided into 100 equal parts and a certain part of it is to be expressed in terms of the whole quantity, that portion is called as a percent, represented with a % sign.

2. Percentage people who prefer walking = Number of people who prefer walking / Total people surveyed * 100.

## The correct answer is: 1350

### Given-

Percentage people who prefer walking = 40%

Number of people who prefer walking = 540

To find-

Total people surveyed

Solution-

We know that-

Percentage people who prefer walking = Number of people who prefer walking / Total people surveyed * 100

∴ 40 = 540 / Total people surveyed * 100

∴ Total people surveyed = 540 * 100 / 40

∴ Total people surveyed = 1350

Final Answer- Option 'b' i.e. '1350' is the correct answer to the given question.
