Hey Geniuskids,
Following pls find my worked solutions:
Q12
Required % = [(B  G) / G] × 100
B = 40  15 = 25
Required % = [(25  15) / 15] × 100
= (10 / 15) × 100
= (2 / 3) × 100
= 200 / 3
= 66 2/3 %
=========
Q20
Join OM (the other diagonal of the square MNOP).
Length of OM = NP
OM is also the radius of Quadrant TSO.
Radius OM = OS = (x + 3)
Hence, NP = (x + 3) cm
=========
Trust this helps.
Do let me know again if there's further clarification.
Cheer,
Edward
