In an entrance test, 5% of the applicants were found ineligible and 85% of the eligible candidates belonged to the general category. If 8550 eligible candidates belonged to other categories, then how many candidates applied for the test?
none of these
Let the number of applicants be x.Number of eligible candidates = 95% of x.
Eligible candidates of each other categories = 15% of (95% of x).
Therefore, 57/400×x = 8550
=> x =(8550×400 / 57)
