According to a recent survey, 26 percent of the 2000 workers at company X were discontented with their jobs. Of this group of discontented employees 20 percent had worked at the Company for at least ten years. If 40 percent of all the wokers have worked at Company X for at least ten years, how many people who had worked at least ten years did not respond that they were discontented with their jobs ?

According to a recent survey, 26 percent of the 2000 workers at company X were discontented with their jobs.=> 520

Of this group of discontented employees 20 percent had worked at the Company for at least ten years. =>104

If 40 percent of all the wokers have worked at Company X for at least ten years,=>800

how many people who had worked at least ten years(800) did not respond that they were discontented with their jobs ? 800-104 = 696

regards,
Pras

696.

20% of 26% of 2000 = 104 reported discontentment
40% of 2000 = 800 is the total.

Total not discontented = 800 - 104 = 696

same approach and answer for me as well.
