(a) 25

(b) 32.5

(c) 8

(d) 50

**Solution:**

Given, in a scout camp 40% were from Gujarat state and 20% of these were from Ahmedabad.

We have to find the __percentage__ of scouts in the camp from Ahmedabad.

Let the scouts in a camp be 100

Scouts from Gujarat = 40% of 100

= (40/100) × 100

= 40

Scouts from Ahmedabad = 20% of 40

= (20/100) × 40

= 800/100

= 8

Percentage of scouts from Ahmedabad = scouts from Ahmedabad/Total scouts × 100

= (8/100) × 100

= 8%

Therefore, the required percentage is 8
