80 student out of 120 students got distinction in Mathematics .70 students out of 100 student got distinction in English .For which subject were the result better ?
Hi uma
To find the percentage of the students that get distinction :
$\displaystyle \text{ \% student} = \frac{\text{number of students that get distinction}}{\text{total student}} \, 100$
Now you can compute the percentages for math and english then compare them
