# A man travelled 60 km by car and 240 km by train. Find what percent of total journey did he travel by car and what percent by train

**Solution:**

Given, a man travelled 60 km by car and 240 km by train.

We have to find the percentage of travel by car and train.

Total distance travelled = distance travelled by car + distance travelled by train

= 60 + 240

Total distance travelled = 300 km

Let m% of 300 km be 60 km

So, (m/100) × 300 = 60

m × 3 = 60

m = 60/3

m = 20%

Therefore, the percentage of distance travelled by car is 20%

Let n% of 300 km be 240 km

So, (n/100) × 300 = 240

n × 3 = 240

n = 240/3

n = 80%

Therefore, the percentage of distance travelled by train is 80%
