# Out of 50 children in a class, 20 are boys. Then the percentage of girls is

(a) 60

(b) 30

(c) 50

(d) 66 2/3

**Solution:**

Given, there are 50 children.

Out of 50, 20 are boys.

We have to find the __percentage__ of girls.

Percentage of girls = (number of girls / total number of children) × 100

Number of girls = total children - number of boys

= 50 - 20

= 30

Percentage of girls = (30/50) × 100

= 3(20)

= 60%

Therefore, the required percentage is 60%
