## Text Solution

**What is Known?**

In a city, \(30\%\) are females, \(40\%\) are males and remaining are children.

**What is Unknown?**

Percentage of children.

**Reasoning:**

Consider the total percentage as \(100\%\). Since, percentage of males and females is known, percentage of children can be obtained by subtraction total percentage of males and females from \(100\%\).

**Steps:**

Total percentage is equal to \(100\%\). out of \(100\% , 30\%,\) are females, \(40 \%\) are females and the remaining are children.

So, the percentage of children

\[\begin{align}&= 100\% - 30\% - 40\% \\&= 30\% \end{align}\]
