# Moderate Percentages Solved QuestionAptitude Discussion

 Q. Ritesh and Co. generated revenue of Rs. 1,250 in 2006. This was $12.5%$ of its gross revenue. In 2007, the gross revenue grew by Rs. 2,500. What is the percentage increase in the revenue in 2007?
 ✖ A. $12.5\%$ ✖ B. $20\%$ ✔ C. $25\%$ ✖ D. $50\%$

Solution:
Option(C) is correct

We are given that Ritesh and Co. generated revenue of Rs. 1,250 in 2006 and that this was $12.5\%$ of the gross revenue.

Hence, if 1250 is $12.5\%$ of the revenue, then 100% (gross revenue) is:

$=\dfrac{100}{12.5}\times 1250$

$=10,000$

Hence, the total revenue by end of 2007 is Rs. 10,000. In 2006, revenue grew by Rs. 2500. This is a growth of:

$=\dfrac{2500}{10000}\times 100$

$=25\%$
