Difficulty:

  35% (medium)

Question Stats:

76% (01:41) correct 24% (00:20) wrong based on 55 sessions
Each person in a certain group supports only one of two candidates R and T. Of the people in the group, 45 percent support Candidate R and the rest support Candidate T. How many people in the group are in favor of a flat tax ?

(1) Of the people in the group who support Candidate R, 58 percent are in favor of flat tax

(2) Of the people in the group who support Candidate T, 22 are in favor of a flat tax.

[Reveal] Spoiler:
My question is regarding statement 2. If we were given that it was 22 percent instead of the number 22, then the 2 statements combined will be sufficient ( answer choice C) is this correct?
[Reveal] Spoiler: OA

Notice that we are asked to find the number of people (not percentage) in the group who are in favor of a flat tax.

When we consider the statements together we have that in favor of flat tax are 58% of 45% of total + 22 people. We need to know the number of people in the group.

Answer E.

As for your question: the answer would still be E for the same reason.
