The bar graph given below shows the percentage distribution of the total production of a car manufacturing company into various models over two years.

Percentage of Six different types of Cars manufactured by a Company over Two Years 4.

If 85% of the S type cars produced in each year were sold by the company, how many S type cars remain unsold?

 [A]. 7650 [B]. 9350 [C]. 11,850 [D]. 12,250

Explanation:

Number of S type cars which remained unsold in 2000 = 15% of 35,000

and number of S type cars which remained unsold in 2001 = 15% of 44,000. Total number of S type cars which remained unsold

= 15% of (35,000 + 44,000)

= 15% of 79,000

= 11,850.

 Snehal said: (Sep 19, 2012) @tanu - 15% = (100%-85%) , In question it is given as 85% of the cars are sold thats means remaining 15% are unsold. I hope I have cleared your Doubt.

 Sonam said: (Aug 6, 2013) @A.J question was to find the total no.of S type car unsold, not total car unsold.

 Ramki said: (Aug 31, 2014) 10% cars is how to convert 15%.

 Chinu said: (Nov 9, 2014) IT should 15% of 10%?

 Prateek said: (Sep 13, 2016) Why is not multiplied by 350000 and 440000 respectively in above question?

 Bappi said: (Nov 6, 2016) If I take 85% of 3,50,000 so I got = 3,50,000 - 297500 = 52500 which is 15%. So anyone just tells me how is it possible rest value?

 Apoorv said: (Nov 29, 2016) For Unsold cars. 15% (10% of 3,50,000) + 15% (10% of 4,40,000) Hope you get it guys.

 Riri said: (Mar 23, 2018) Exactly as 10% shown in bar graph.

 Chidera said: (Jun 3, 2018) Still don't get. Why it is 15% of 35000 instead of 15%/of 350,000 and vice versa? Please explain.

 Shubham said: (Jun 11, 2018) @All. It is given that 85% is sold, first take out how many cars are produced/manufactured so 10%of 3,50,000 is done. Now we got that 35,000 are manufacture, then it is said that 85% is sold out of 35000 therefore 15% is not sold. That's why we are taking 15% of 35,000 same in 2001. Hope you all understand.

 Bagir said: (Oct 4, 2020) Agree @Prateek. I think it's 350000 instead of 35000. Same as 440000 instead of 44000. 15% of 350000 = 52500 15% of 440000 = 66000 52500 + 66000 = 118500 (instead of 11850).

 Samdrup Pelmo said: (Nov 29, 2020) 2000 = 10% of 35,0000=35000. 2001 = 10% of 44,0000=44000. Therefore the Total number of S type cars which remained unsold; 100%-85%=15%. 15% of 35000=5250 15% of 44000=6600 5250+6600 = 11,850.
