Question

# In 2015 the populations of City X and City Y were equal. From 2010 to 2015 , the population of City X increased by 20% and the population of City decreased by 10%. If the population of City was 120,000 in 2010 , what was the population of City Y in 2010?

- 60000
- 90000
- 160000
- 240000

Hint:

**Hint:**

- A
** percentage** is a number or ratio that can be expressed as a fraction of 100.

**percentage**is a number or ratio that can be expressed as a fraction of 100.## The correct answer is: 160000

### Explanation:

- We have given In 2015 the populations of City X and City Y were equal. From 2010 to 2015, the population of City X increased by 20% and the population of City Y decreased by 10%
- We have to find what was the population of City Y in 2010.

Step 1 of 1:

1: population of city x in 2010 = 120000

it increases by 20 % in 5 years . so in 2015 it will be

Thus population of city x in 2015 is 144000.

2: the population of city x and y are same in year 2015.

3: to find= population of city y in 2010 .if it reduces by 10% in 5 years.it will be 10 % more in year 2010

4: let population of city y in year 2015 be 100.

it gets increased by 10% =90

thus-

X =160000

population of city x is .

Hence, Option C is correct.
