Hi there,
pass mark =185+15=200
let x be the total mark
then  40/100*x=200
40x=20000
x=20000/40=500
therefore the total mark =500
i hope this helps u

The pass marks in the examination will be :  185 + 15 = 200 marks

200 marks are  40% of the total marks.

200 = 40/100  * total marks

total marks = 200 * 100 / 40  = 500
