    To determine in which subject the student performed better, we can compare the percentage of marks obtained in each subject.

    In math:

    Percentage in math = (Marks obtained in math / Total marks in math) * 100

    = (150 / 200) * 100

    = 75%

    In science:

    Percentage in science = (Marks obtained in science / Total marks in science) * 100

    = (120 / 180) * 100

    = 66.67%

    Comparing the percentages, we can see that the student performed better in math, where they scored 75%, compared to 66.67% in science.
