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.

The solution given in Kaplan is C) but I think B) should be the correct answer.

phaedrus,

If you think that's the case, then solve the question using only the information contained in the question and the information in part B.

If you can do it, and no one can point out an assumption that you shouldn't have made, you're probably correct.

As it stands now, I agree with Kaplan.

Thinking Phaedrus has a point [#permalink]  26 Jan 2004, 12:15
looking at B only:

let x be the number of honors 4-year students.
then number of honors transfer students = 1.5x

total honors students - x+1.5x = 2.5x
total transfer honor students - 1.5x

1.5x/2.5x = 3/2 : 5/2 = 3/5

Voila.

You don't even need the information that the number of transfers is equal to the number of 4-year students that is given in the beginning.

Odd. R U sure that that is the exact phrasing of the question??
