# Easy Percentages Solved QuestionAptitude Discussion

 Q. A batsman scored 110 runs which included 3 boundaries and 8 sixes. What percent of his total score did he make by running between the wickets?
 ✖ A. $45\%$ ✔ B. $45{\dfrac{5}{11}}\%$ ✖ C. $54{\dfrac{6}{11}}\%$ ✖ D. $55\%$

Solution:
Option(B) is correct

Number of runs made by running,

$= 110 - (3 × 4 + 8 × 6)$
$= 110 - (60)$
$= 50.$

Required percentage,
$= \left(\dfrac{50}{110}×100\right)\%$
$= 45\dfrac{5}{11}\%$

Hey Naaz, there was a typo in the last line. Instead of dividing by $110$ (= total runs scored) it was being divided by $100$. Corrected the mistake. Hope it is clear now.
