Assume 10% of 43150 i.e., 4315. 4810 - 4315 = 495. 1% of 43150 is 431.50. 495-431.50 = 63.50. 63.50 is 0.15% of 43150. Then add all 10%+1%+0.15% = 11.15%. Try to consider the denominator parts as 1% , 10% to solve these kind of problems. |

I think we can do the below: 4810/4315 = .48/.432(apprx) = .12/.108 = .03/.27 = .01/.09 = 1/9 = 100/9% = 11.111...% |

4810/43150*100 = 11.147 this is correct answer. Why should you given the answer - 11.15? Please reply me. |

Chowdareddy said: (Jun 7, 2014) | |

@Kapil, As you said exact value is 11.147 only but we have nearest value 11.15 in the options. You have to consider the most nearest value when there is no exact value. |

4810---->4500. 43150---->40000. 4500/40000*100 = 11.25%. So nearest value off our answer in options was 11.15%. So the answer is D. |

@Swathi. Your calculation is wrong, it goes beyond 13% so, how we can get answer between 11.15 and 11.47%. Please correct me if I m wrong. Thanks. |
