1. Let total number of eggs be n
No.of rotten eggs =15/100×n
By the problem no.of rotten eggs=48

So ,15/100×n=48
n=48/15×100=320

Therefore, Total no.of eggs=320

2. Why let the total number be n? It says there are 150.
rotten:good = 25/(150-25) = 25/125 = 1/5
rotten:total = 25/150 = 1/6
good:total = 125/150 = 5/6 (as expected, since 1/6 are bad)
