If BurgerVille College is graduating an equal number of 4-year students and transfer students, what fraction of the students who graduate with honors are transfer students?

1. Of the 700 transfer students graduating, 300 are graduating with honors.

2. Fifty percent more transfer students than 4-year students are graduating with honors.

any suggestions???

regards

1. 300 transfer students graduate with Honors...here we dont know the total number of graduating students with Honors..we want the number of 4 yr students graduating with honors to answer the question

So 1 is insufficient

2. Transfer students Grad with Honors = 1.5 * 4yr Students grad. with honors

let the number of transfer students be y

let the Number of 4 yr students with honors be x.

We are looking for the ratio y/ (x+y)

So, y = 1.5 * x

Therefore ratio is 1.5 x /( 1.5 x+ x) = 1.5 /2.5 = 3/5

Answer B

Let me know the correct answer

thanks
