4. The bus was occupied by 60% and if the total seats on a bus are 70, how many seats were available?

## Solution:

As the bus was occupied by 60%,

and total seats on a bus are 70, so

To find available seats, we will subtract the total seats with occupied seats.

On solving we will get 28 seats.

The number of seats available is 28.
