5. 

During the period between 1995 and 2000, the total number of Operators who left the Company is what percent of total number of Operators who joined the Company?

[A]. 19%
[B]. 21%
[C]. 27%
[D]. 29%

Answer: Option D

Explanation:

Total number of Operators who left the Company during 1995 - 2000

    = (104 + 120 + 100 + 112 + 144)

    = 580.

Total number of Operators who joined the Company during 1995 - 2000

    = (880 + 256 + 240 + 208 + 192 + 248)

    = 2024.

Therefore Required Percentage = ( 580 x 100 ) % = 28.66% ~= 29%.
2024

104+102+100+112+114 =550 not 580 so answer is 27%.

See the numbers correctly.

It's not 102 and 114 its 120 and 144 i.e., 104+120+100+112+144. So answer is 580 itself.

Why we divide 580/2024 ? explain.

@root.

Because they are asking for the "total number of operators who left" and then the total number of operators who joined, thus, it's left/joined.
