A man earns N3,500 per month out of which he spends 15% on his children’s education. If he spends additional N1,950 on food, how much does he have left?
  • A.
    N525
  • B.
    N1,025
  • C.
    N1,950
  • D.
    N2,975
Correct Answer: Option B
Explanation

Amount spent on children = (frac{15}{100} times 3500 = N525)
Amount spent = Amount on children + Additional amount on food
Amount Spent = N525 + N1950 = N2475
Therefore amount left = N3,500 – N2,475 = N1,025
