# The following pie chart depicts the expenditure of a state government under different heads.

(i) If the total spending is 10 crores, how much money was spent on roads?

(ii) How many times is the amount of money spent on education compared to the amount spent on roads?

(iii) What fraction of the total expenditure is spent on both roads and public welfare together?

**Solution:**

(i) From the pie chart, 10% is for the roads

10% of 10 crores is 10/100 × 10crores = 1crore

(ii) Money spent on education is 25% and money spent on roads is 10%. Clearly 25% of 10 crores is more than 10% of 10 crores, 2.5 crores is greater than 1 crore.

(iii) Money spent on roads is 10%, public welfare is 20%, so on roads it is 1 crore, on public welfare it is 2crores.

Hence, it is together 30% which is 1/3rd of total money.
