# 45% of the population of a town are men and 40% are women. What is the percentage of children

**Solution:**

Given, 45% of the population of a town are men

40% of the population are women.

We have to find the percentage of children

Total population of town = 100%

Given, percentage of men population = 45%

Percentage of women population = 40%

Percentage of children = total population - percentage of men population - percentage of women population

= 100% - 45% - 40%

Taking out negative sign as common,

= 100% - (45% + 40%)

= 100% - 85%

= 15%

Therefore, the required value is 15%
