    If failing 1 or more tests results in an overall fail, then.....

    27% failed both, so (30-27)%=3% failed History but not Geography
    and (35-27)%=8% failed Geography but not History.

    Hence, (27+3+8)%=38% of the students failed the exam.

    62% of the students passed which is 248.

    1% of the students is \frac{248}{62}=4

    Hence, 100% of the students is how many?
