# Data Interpretation - Pie Charts - Discussion

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:

4.

What is the percentage of candidates passed to the candidates enrolled for institutes Q and R together?

 [A]. 68% [B]. 80% [C]. 74% [D]. 65%

Explanation:

 Candidates passed from institutes Q and R together = [(13% + 17%) of 5700] = 30% of 5700. Candidates enrolled from institutes Q and R together = [(15% + 10%) of 8550] = 25% of 8550.

Required Percentage
 = 30% of 5700 x 100 % 25% of 8550
 = 30 x 5700 x 100 % 25 x 8550
= 80%.

 Tryhard said: (Dec 1, 2018) In the top chart, 10%+115% = 25%, but 25% of 8550 isn't a whole number, and you can't have half a candidate.
