Tick (✓) the correct answer:

In an examination, Nitin gets 98 marks. This amounts to 56% of the maximum marks. What are the maximum marks?

(a) 75

(b) 150

(c) 175

(d) 225


(c) 175

Let the maximum marks be $\mathrm{x}$. Then, we have:

$56 \%$ of $x=\left(x \times \frac{56}{100}\right)$

$=\frac{56 x}{100}$

Now, $\frac{56 x}{100}=98$

$\Rightarrow x=\left(98 \times \frac{100}{56}\right)$

$\Rightarrow x=175$
