Option 5 : 80%

Given:

the total number of students = 14,000

Percentage of boys attended the school function = 25% of total boys

Percentage of girls who attended the school function = 60% of total girls

Calculation:

Let the number of total boys in the school be 'x'.

so, the number of boys who have not participated in the function = 75% of the total boys = 0.75x

The number of total girls in the school = the number of boys who have not participated in the function = 0.75x

⇒ x + 0.75x = 14000

⇒ x = 8000

⇒ the number of boys who have participated in the function = 0.25x = 8000 × 0.25 = 2000

⇒ the number of girls who have participated in the function = 60% of the total girls = 0.75x × 0.6

0.75x × 0.6 = 0.75 × 8000 × 0.6 ⇒ 3600

required percentage = (3600 - 2000)/2000 × 100 = 80%

**∴ The number of girls who have participated is 80% more than the number of boys who have participated.**
