Where did you get the answer to question 5 in hurdle one from?
You do 55% of the 2.7mil (that will give you the sales $ of the wholesale cartons sold)
Then divide that by $90 (that will give you the number of whole cartons sold)
and then multiply 5 (that will give you the total individual number of cartons sold)
5 boxes cost $90, not 1 box
Would you expect these solved without a calculator?
Ignore the question, saw that answered in the intro, thanks!
How did we solve Q9? Any clue?
70% of the class represented by 12 Chooses the other class and 30 who didn’t do any
In other words 70% of class represented by 42 (12+30)
Therefor 1% is represented by (42/70)
Then 100% of the calss is (42/70)100 = 60
Or easily 42/0.7(Since it is 70%) = 60
How would you solve Q6 ?
Y1: 1,5x(1+0.12)=1.65
Y2: 1.65×1.12=1.8816
How did you solve Q4?
Sorry, Q3
