Solution:

In 100 students left the school = 4 students

” 1 ” ” ” ” ” = (4÷100) ”

= 36 studens.

Remaining students = 900-36 = 864 students

Now, In 100 students remained the girls students = 50 students

Now, When sell price is 20 Tk. more then cost price =Tk. 100

” ” ” ” 1 ” ” ” ” = (100÷20) ”

” ” ” ” 1000 ” ” = (100÷20)×1000 ”

= 5000 Tk.
