Abhilasha Dixit said: (Jun 6, 2011) | |

Please explain. |

Tijender said: (Jun 7, 2011) | |

How you can divide this? |

Sonal said: (Jul 15, 2011) | |

Its comes out 2 be 170/171= .99, so it becomes approx. 1%, and thats the answer. |

Shiv Paliwal said: (Jul 21, 2011) | |

Can you explain me that how this amt is come. This amt is just nearest to 1. |

Napster said: (Jul 23, 2011) | |

It is just taling about a given period. So how could he take the whole? |

Vivek said: (Aug 6, 2011) | |

Please give it with formula. |

Pincky said: (Aug 14, 2011) | |

Please explain. |

Vijay said: (Aug 28, 2011) | |

It is so easy 17/171*10=>170/171=>1 |

Sirisha said: (Sep 22, 2011) | |

How can you diving without values, can you explain clearly ? |

Mukesh said: (Oct 8, 2011) | |

Why to multiply with 100? |

Om Yadav said: (Nov 8, 2011) | |

Please explain with detail. |

Cool said: (Jan 17, 2012) | |

(Total Bonus during the given period) ______________________________________ * 100 (Total Salary during the given period) |

Gaurav said: (Feb 3, 2012) | |

Explain in brief. |

Amit Pardeshi said: (May 11, 2012) | |

This method is too long. And calculating is also very deep. There is no shortcut avilable to get the answer in short time. |

Anil Choudhary said: (May 12, 2012) | |

Total salary of x% = Total bonus i.e. 17X100/1710 = 0.9 i.e. 1% approx. |

Narendra Reddy said: (Sep 22, 2013) | |

What is meant by during this period ? |

Sai Karthik said: (Nov 15, 2013) | |

It's very simple. Understand the question first. Hint: X is what percent of Y --> (X/Y)*100. Explanation: Try to sort it out from the leftmost end. Total amount of bonus paid by the company during the given period -->3.00+2.52+3.84+3.68+3.96 = 17.00. Total amount of salary paid during this period -->288+342+324+336+420 = 1710. Now come to the right most end. Total amount of bonus paid by the company during the given period -->3.00+2.52+3.84+3.68+3.96 = 17.00. Come to the middle part of the question joining the first two questions...it clarifies as 17.00 is what percent of 1710? Problem solved: --> (17/1710)*100 ~ 1%. @Narendra Reddy. During this period means during the entire period shown in the table i.e., from 1998 to 2002. |

Padum Chetry said: (Apr 18, 2014) | |

But why we divide 17 by1710? |

Pradeep Sekar said: (May 3, 2014) | |

Instead of considering the summation of Bonus and Summation of Salary, Considering the Bonus and Salary for individual year would be a wise move and would consume less time. For Eg: Considering the Year 1998, Bonus is 3.00 and Salary is 288 Lakhs Respectively 3*(100)/288 = 1.04 % approximately 1%. |

Geetha said: (Nov 25, 2014) | |

Its easy 170/171 is .99, so answer is 1. |

Rahul said: (Mar 21, 2015) | |

Can you explain this? Because my math is very loss. So that explain in easy way. |

Deven said: (Mar 30, 2015) | |

K it is comparison between bonus and salary in all years. |

Debasish Nath said: (May 20, 2015) | |

Let, Total bonus = x% of salary. => 17 = 1710 (x%). =>17 = 1710 (x/100). Now solving for x, x = 1700/1710 = 0.99 = 1% (approximately). |

Prajkta said: (Jun 30, 2015) | |

But why there is multiply by 100? |

Ramana said: (Jun 23, 2016) | |

Total bonus equal to total salary. I.e Salary given in hundreds but bonus is actual that's why we can multiply 100. |

Ronnie Krp said: (Jan 7, 2017) | |

It is near to 1. |

Vijay said: (Feb 26, 2017) | |

First of all, read the question and than solve it: X is what percent of Y --> (X/Y)*100. Explanation: Try to sort it out from the leftmost end. Total amount of bonus paid by the company during the given period -->3.00+2.52+3.84+3.68+3.96 = 17.00. Total amount of salary paid during this period -->288+342+324+336+420 = 1710. Now come to the right most end. Total amount of bonus paid by the company during the given period -->3.00+2.52+3.84+3.68+3.96 = 17.00. Come to the middle part of the question joining the first two questions. It clarifies as 17.00 is what percent of 1710? Problem solved: --> (17/1710)*100 ~ 1%. During this period means during the entire period shown in the table i.e., from 1998 to 2002. Thankyou and keep practicing. |

Barnali Dutta said: (Dec 29, 2017) | |

Bonus=3+2.52+3.84+3.68+3.96=17, Salary=288+342+324+336+420=1710, 1710 * (X/100)=17, X=1710/1710=1. |

Suryaprakashchamoli said: (Jan 9, 2018) | |

Because 1710=100% ,171.0=10%,17.10=1% so its near. |

Raashid said: (Jan 15, 2018) | |

X = salary , Y= bonus A as per percentage. X . A percnt = y. A percnt = y/x. A/100= y/x . So A =y.100/x. |

Swathi said: (Mar 3, 2018) | |

Why we divided 100 means they are asking in percentage. Percentage means 100 so that we did that? |

Dheeraj Kamble said: (Jan 11, 2020) | |

Please explain the answer. |

Nagendrababu said: (Mar 5, 2020) | |

I can not understand these tables problem-solving. Please explain. |

Ash said: (Mar 19, 2020) | |

The total bonus is what % of total salary. Total salary* (x/100)= total bonus. 1710* (x/100)= 17. x/100=17/1710. x=(17/1710 )*100. 1%. |

Ram said: (Jun 9, 2020) | |
