Download Solution PDF**Given:**

The problem requires finding the difference between 11% of 22.2 and 10% of 24.4.

**Formula used:**

Percentage formula: P% of X = (P/100) * X

**Calculation:**

First, calculate 11% of 22.2:

11% of 22.2 = (11/100) * 22.2

⇒ 11% of 22.2 = 0.11 * 22.2

⇒ 11% of 22.2 = 2.442

Next, calculate 10% of 24.4:

10% of 24.4 = (10/100) * 24.4

⇒ 10% of 24.4 = 0.10 * 24.4

⇒ 10% of 24.4 = 2.44

Now, find the difference:

Difference = 2.44 - 2.442

⇒ Difference = -0.002

**∴ The difference between 11% of 22.2 and 10% of 24.4 is -0.002.**

**Hence Option (3) is correct.**
