**Exercise 8.2 Class 7 Question 8.**

Out of 15,000 voters in a constituency, 60% voted. Find the percentage of voters who did not vote. Can you now find how many actually did not vote?

**Solution:**

Percentage of voters who voted = 60%

Percentage of voters who did not vote = (100 – 60)% = 40%

Total number of voters = 15000

Number of voters who did not vote = 40% of 15000

= ( \(\frac { 40 }{ 100 }\) × 15000 )

= 6000

Meeta saves ₹ 400 from her salary. If this is 10% of her salary. What is her salary?

Let her salary be ₹ P. Then, 10% of P = 400

⇒ \(\frac { 10 }{ 100 }\) × p = 400

⇒ \(\frac { P }{ 10 }\) = 400

⇒ P = 400 × 10

⇒ P = 4000

Hence, her salary is ₹ 4000.
