Percentages
Out of the shirts produced in a factory, 15% are defective, while 20% of the rest are sold in the domestic market. If the remaining 8840 shirts are left for export, then the number of shirts produced in the factory is

- 13600
- 13000
- 13400
- 14000

### Answer

A total of 15% shirts are defective. Of the remaining 85%, 20% are sold in the domestic market. So, 20% of 85%, i.e. 17% are sold in the domestic market and the remaining 68% are exported. But, it is given that 8840 shirts were exported.

If 68% is 8840, then

100% = (8840 × 100)/68

= 13000

**The correct option is B.**
