# Percentages: Level 2 Challenges

In a box of mangoes, 80% of them are high-quality while 20% are low-quality. If 10 low-quality mangoes are removed, then 96% of the rest will be high-quality.

What is the total number of mangoes from the start?

$\LARGE\color{green}{\sqrt{100\%}=\ ?}$

There are 100 people in a room, exactly 99% are physicist. How many physicist must leave the room to bring down the percentage of physicist to exactly 98%?

If $$x=80\%$$, then by what percent is $$x$$ larger than $$x^2$$?
