# The pie chart gives the marks scored in an examination by a student in different subjects. If the total marks obtained were 540, answer the following questions-

(i) In which subject did the student score 105 marks?

(ii) How many more marks were obtained by the student in Mathematics than in Hindi?

**Solution:**

(i) given total marks = 540 = 360°

For 1 mark = 360/540

For 105 marks = 360/540 × 105=70

From the pie chart, we have 70°= Hindi subject

Therefore, in Hindi subject students scored 105 marks

(ii) In Hindi a student scored 105 marks

In Mathematics, 360/4 = 90 ; 540/4 = 135

Therefore, in Mathematics he scored 135 marks

Difference between Mathematics and Hindi is 135 - 105 = 30
