Question

# If 20% of students earned an A on a test. If there were 30 students in the class, how many got an A.

- 3
- 6
- 9
- 12

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 of students scoring A grade = Number of students scoring A grade/ Total number of students * 100.

## The correct answers are: 6, 9

### Given-

Percentage of students scoring A grade = 20%

Total number of students = 30

To find-

Number of students scoring A grade

Solution-

We know that-

Percentage of students scoring A grade = Number of students scoring A grade/ Total number of students * 100.

∴ 20 = Number of students scoring A grade/ 30 * 100

∴ 20 * 30 / 100 = Number of students scoring A grade

∴ 6 = Number of students scoring A grade

Final Answer- Option 'b' i.e. '6' is the correct answer to the given question.
