Parking

At a building parking, 245 spaces are for cars, 56 are for vans and the rest are for buses. If 14% of all parking spaces are for buses, how many parking spaces are there in the building? How many spaces are for buses?

Result

b =  49
p =  350

Solution:


p = 245+56+b
b = 14/100 * p

b-p = -301
100b-14p = 0

b = 49
p = 350
