    Please give solution.

    A student needed 35% marks to pass an exam. He secured 235 marks and failed by 29 marks. What were the total marks?

    This should not be in the math challenge problems forum.

    passing marks = 235+29 = 264

    passing marks = 0.35 (total marks) = 264

    total marks = 264/0.35 $\approx$ 754 marks
