Here the given population is 32000 for Village R. From the pie chart it clearly mentioned the % of Village R is 16% of the total population, since we do not know the total population let we take it as "X". So now ; X + 16% = 32000. X= 32000*100/16 which is 2,Lkhs , So now the total Population was derived as 2,Lkh , For Village Y (Given %) => 15. So 2,00,000 * 15/100 = 30,000. From this 30,000 we have to find for the poverty Line % (given in the table) as 52%. So, 30,000*52/100 = 15600. |

How can you compare R and Y villages population? |

Shabbaz said: (Aug 10, 2017) | |

It can be calculated as R=16% = 32000. ::Y=15%= So, 15% of 32000 = 30000, 52% is below poverty line for Y= 52% of 15%=7.8%, so, 30000*7.8/15 = 15600. |
