Let X be 35% more than 300
Therefore X =1.35*300=405

Hence option A is correct.

35% of 300 = 300 * 35/100 = 105.

35% more than 300 = 300 + 105 = 405. Hence A.

We can translate the given question as:

1.35(300) = 135/100 x 300 = 135 x 3 = 405

Answer: A

10% of 300 = 30
20% of 300 = 60
30% of 300 = 90

Also, if 10% of 300 = 30, then 5% of 300 = 15

So, 35% of 300 = 90 + 15
= 105
So, 35% MORE THAN 300 = 300 + 105 = 405

\(\frac{100+35}{100}*300\) \(= 405\)

Thus, answer must be (A) 405
