The pie chart shows the distribution of New York market share by volume of different computer companies in 2005.

Number of units sold in 2005 in New York = 1,500

Value of units sold in 2005 in New York = US $1,650,000.

3. 

In 2005, the average unit sale price of an IBM PC was approximately (in US$)

[A]. 3180
[B]. 2800
[C]. 393
[D]. 3080

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

IBM accounts for 28% of the share by value and 10% of the share by volume.

28% of 1650000 = 28 x 1650000/100 = 462000

10% of 1500 = 10 x 1500/100 = 150

Therefore, average unit sale price = 462000/150 = 3080.
