**Math Riddle Answers**

You must have figured out the answers by now. Still, we are going to reveal the answers so you can cross-check your answers.

**Math Riddle #1 **

Percentage of matches lost by the team = 25 %

So, the percentage of matches won by team = (100 - 25) % = 75 %

Let the number of matches played be x.

Then 75 % of x = 15

=> 75/100 × x = 15

=> x = (15 × 100)/75 %

=> x = (1500)/75 %

=> x = 20 %

**Hence, the total number of matches played by the team is 20.**

**Math Riddle #2 **

This is an easy one.

Calculating the percentage of the plot allowed for construction

(4500/6000 × 100) % = 75 %.

Now, calculating the percentage of the plot left without construction = (100 - 75)%

**Hence, the percentage of the plot that is to be left without construction is 25%.**

**Math Riddle #3**

Calculating the percentage scored by the student in Mathematics = 60/90 × 100 %

=> 0.6666 x 100 %

=> 66 %

**Hence, the student scored 66% in Mathematics. **
