Question is Avg of 2001 % of Avg 2000 %. The answer however is other way round. avg of 2001 (93.3) of avg of 2000 ( 81.6) which would be 113.97 |

Can any one tell me the short cut to solve these kind of problems, where big numbers are involved in division like the one above, 245/280= 0.875. |

Indhu said: (Oct 28, 2012) | |

In the question the part which asks "what percentage of", should always be considered as the denominator substitution. Ie. What percent of part: average sales of B1, B2, B3. Numberator: Average sales of B1, B3, B6 = 245/3 = 81. 67. Denominator:Average sales of B1, B2, B3 = 280/3 = 93. 33. So, numerator/denominator = (81. 67/93. 33) *100% = 0. 88*100%= 87. 5%. Answer is D. |

Please clarify why 1/3 in both cases? |

Sonia said: (May 24, 2014) | |

Because they have asked for the average of 3 branches only. |

Arunchith said: (Jun 21, 2014) | |

Please help me how can I identified the denominator year and numerator year from question like this. |

Hi all, Sales for B2 in 2000 is 75 not 70. |

Amit said: (Apr 5, 2016) | |

How to find the percentage? |

Venky said: (Apr 13, 2016) | |

@Amit, multiple the value with 100. |

Asme said: (Oct 22, 2016) | |

Here, there is the number on B2 in 2001 and 2000 is exchanged 70 and 65. |

Laxman said: (Dec 8, 2016) | |

What percent of the average sales of branches B1, B2, B3 and B4 in 2000. So what quartil use in this question? |

Omkar said: (Apr 11, 2017) | |

@ALL. Because they have asked for the average of 3 branches only. |

Lingasen said: (Jun 17, 2017) | |

How do you determine which is the denominator and which is the numerator? Please tell me. |

Sowmya said: (Aug 9, 2018) | |

Thanks you so much @INDHU. |

Bunny said: (Sep 27, 2018) | |

What happened 3 in both the cases? |

Anomie said: (Feb 26, 2019) | |

Both 3 got nullify with each other like 245÷3 /280÷3 = 245÷3 * 3÷280 = hence 245÷280 * 100, we get 87.5%. |

Nikita Gupta said: (May 21, 2019) | |

B1, B2, B3 in 2001 should be numerators and B1, B3, B6 in 2000 should be denominator. |

Venkanna Babu said: (Aug 6, 2019) | |

B6 = 80. |

Yee Yang said: (Aug 22, 2019) | |

Why we have take 245 as numinrator rather than taking denominator? |
