Jambmaths question: 

A man earns N3,500 per month out of which he spends 15% on his children’s education. If he spend 15% on his additional N 1950 on food, how much does he have left?

Option A: 

N 525

Option B: 

N 1025

Option C: 

N 1950

Option D: 

N 2975

Jamb Maths Solution: 

15% of the man’s salary is $\frac{15}{100}\times 3500=525$

So the man spends N 525 on his children’s education . The amount he spend on food is  N1950

Total expenditure = N 1950 + N 525 = N 2475

What is left of the man salary is  N 3500 – N 2475 = N 1025
