Mentioned as or but added two countries, looks correction required.

Please explain why do we add 40 %+ 20%, while question used %age of tourist went either USA or UK?

Kiran said: (Nov 23, 2015)  
And should be used instead of or.

Barath said: (Apr 23, 2016)  
Because the question mentioned here is What percentage of Indian tourist went to either USA or UK ?

So,
US - 40.
UK - 10.

Then 40 + 10 = 50.

How it's? I am not understanding.

In case of "Either" it requires addition. Since, we do know the percentage but don't know the number, so it signifies the number lies in between the percentage area.

How it will be added 40 and 10?

Jahid said: (Oct 15, 2016)  
Here, either means to add. So (40% + 10%) = 50%.

In question it have "or" instead of "add". If the answer is correct then question have to be correction. Place 'add' in place of 'or'. Then will be it correct.
