Study the following graph carefully and answer the questions given below:

Distribution of candidates who were enrolled for MBA entrance exam and the candidates (out of those enrolled) who passed the exam in different institutes: 5.

What is the ratio of candidates passed to the candidates enrolled from institute P?

 [A]. 9 : 11 [B]. 14 : 17 [C]. 6 : 11 [D]. 9 : 17

Explanation:

 Required ratio = 18% of 5700 = 18 x 5700 = 6 . 22% of 8550 22 x 8550 11

 Sonam said: (Apr 28, 2012) How can we calculate the ratio of 1026:1881?

 Leah said: (Jan 22, 2014) Here is another way to do it: 1. Add up 1026+1881= 2907. 2. Add up all ratios given: A, 9+11= 20 B, 14+17= 31 C, 6+11= 17 D, 9+17= 26. 3. Divide 2907 by each whole ratio, in turn then multiply by each number of the ratio. EX. A (9:11)= 2907/20= 104.85. 104.85 X 9= 943.65 WE SHOULD HAVE GOT 1026 IF THIS WAS THE CORRECT RATIO- SO IT IS NOT A. TRY C (6:11). 2907/17= 171. 171 X 6= 1026. 171 X 11= 1881 Answer C (6:11) is Correct. Hope this helps!

 Michael said: (Oct 7, 2014) I also came to the answer of 6:11. I took the steps of: 1. 0.18 * 5700 = 1026. 2. 0.22 * 8550 = 1881. 3. 1026/1881 = 0.5454. 4. Then simply press the ratio button on your calculator to get the answer of 6:11.

 Priyal said: (Oct 15, 2015) How to get accurate correct answers by divide 2907/17 without using calculator please give step by step process.

 Shubham said: (Sep 17, 2016) It's very difficult to calculate such types of ratio tell us the shortcut for that, please.

 Ankur said: (Oct 5, 2016) Try to look it like this, 114/209 = approx and a little bit more than 0.5 ~ as 5 * 2 = 10 which is nearby 11 of 114. Now check all the answers. Only 6/11 is the near and little bit more than 0.5 ~.

 Santosh Sahu said: (Oct 7, 2017) Superb trick, thank you very much @Leah.

 Gauri said: (Oct 18, 2017) 1026/1881 ( division of both with 19) = 54/99( division of both by 9) = 6/11.

 Abii said: (Oct 30, 2019) The superb trick, thank you very much @Leah. This method is very useful for me.
