4.

The percentage of 4AH batteries sold to the total number of batteries sold was maximum in the year?

Answer: Option

Explanation:

The percentages of sales of 4AH batteries to the total sales in different years are:

For 1992 = | 75 | x 100 | % = 13.81%. | ||

543 |

For 1993 = | 90 | x 100 | % = 17.05%. | ||

528 |

For 1994 = | 96 | x 100 | % = 18.29%. | ||

525 |

For 1995 = | 105 | x 100 | % = 20.59%. | ||

510 |

For 1996 = | 96 | x 100 | % = 19.35%. | ||

465 |

For 1997 = | 105 | x 100 | % = 21.21%. | ||

495 |

For 1998 = | 115 | x 100 | % = 19.01%. | ||

605 |

Clearly, the percentage is maximum in 1997.

Here we calculate sales of 4AH batteries to that of total sales of different year i.e in 1994. 1995. 1996. 1997. So total sales is different in different years.

Got it.

Got it.

I got it.

Total sale for one year for one type of battery to the total sale of all type of battery.

Total sale for one year for one type of battery to the total sale of all type of battery.
