(a) Let the whole quantity be X
Therefore, 5 % of X = 600
\\\Rightarrow \frac{5}{100}\times X=600\\ \Rightarrow X = \frac{600\time 100}{5}=12000
Thus the required whole quantity is 12000

(b) 12 % of X = Rs 1080
\\\Rightarrow \frac{12}{100}\times X=1080\\ \Rightarrow X = \frac{1080\time 100}{12}=9000

(c) 40 % of X = 500 km
\\\Rightarrow \frac{40}{100}\times X=500\\ \Rightarrow X = \frac{50000\time 100}{40}=1250\ km

(d) 70% of X = 14 minutes
\\\Rightarrow \frac{70}{100}\times X=14\ min\\ \Rightarrow X = \frac{1400\time 100}{70}=20\ min

(e) 8 % of X = 40 litre
\\\Rightarrow \frac{8}{100}\times X=40\ L\\ \Rightarrow X = \frac{4000}{8}=500\ L
