The percentage of 4AH batteries sold to the total number of batteries sold was maximum in the year?
1994
1995
1996
1997
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.

Please find that even it was mentioned 96 the value is calculated with 90/465 which is 19.35% and for 1997 it was 21.21% which is higher among all. So the answer is right. So its a type error. That's all.

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.

I got it.

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

Yashika said:   11 months ago
The Total sales are different in every time because it is the sum of all batteries in one year.

Is there any easy way to find the highest or 1 or 2 higher percentages?

Shubham Sharma said:   6 years ago
Yes, You are right @Shivam.

The Sales are taken wrong in 1996.
