maximum marks for paper 1 is 150

(40/100) *x=60

x=60*(40/100)
=150

My Answer for this question is 150

40/100  * x = 60
hence  x = 6000/40
150

40% of x = (40+20)

=> x= 150

let us consider  x is the maximumber number of marks.

secured marks => 40% of x= 40/100 of x=2x/5

To pass an exam he has to score =fail marks+20
=40+20=60
2x/5=60
x=150
maximum marks for paper I is =150
