    Answer:

    320

    Step-by-step explanation:

    first candidate — 100/25×60=240

    second candidate- 100/50×40=80

    total marks= 240+80=320

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let total marks of examination is ‘x’

    first candidate score = 25% of x = x/4

    other candidate score = 50% of x = x/2

    Let passing marks is ‘y’

    A/Q,

    y = ( x/4 ) + 60 and y + 40 = x/2

    Now put first eq in second and we have,

    x/4 + 60 + 40 = x/2

    => x/4 = 120

    => x = 480 marks.

    y = 180 marks.

    Hope you get your answer. Best of Luck
