# 40% of [100 - 20% of 300] is equal to

(a) 20

(b) 16

(c) 140

(d) 64

**Solution:**

To determine the outcome of the given expression we use the concept of percentages.

Given: 40% of [100 - 20% of 300]

we first calculate:

20% of 300, which is

(20/100) × 300

= (1/5) × 300

= 60

Hence the expression 40% of [100 - 20% of 300] reduces to

40% of [100 - 60]

40% of [40]

= (40/100) × 40

= 1600/100

= 16

**✦ ****Try this: **80% of [200 - 20% of 600] is equal to

To determine the outcome of the given expression i.e 80% of [200 - 20% of 600] we first calculate:

20% of 600, which is

(20/100) × 600

= (1/5) × 600

= 120

Hence the expression 80% of [200 - 20% of 600] reduces to

80% of [200 - 120]

40% of [80]

= (40/100) × 80

= 3200/100
