w = 15/32 ~0.4
m = 9/24 = 0.36

c = 1 - (w + m) ~ 0.24


so w m c in descending order another :oops: everything I do after 1 AM I seem to miss

Answer a - c, m, w

m ~ 1/3
w ~ 1/2

and m+w+c = 1 hence c ~ 1/6

Hence increasing order would be c -> m -> w

If m = 9/25, w = 15/32, and m + w+ c = 1, which of the following gives the values of m, w, c in increasing order?

a.c, m, w
b.c, w, m
c.m,w,c
d.w,c,m
e.w,m,c

w is approx = half

m is approx = 0.4
thus sure

a is the answer increasing order ( c<m<w)

Yes, decimals work faster than common denominators here. E would be correct if the question asked for DESCENDING order.

m = 9/25 = 0.36
w = 15/32 = 0.4
On substituting C = 0.24
c , m , w

KUDOS
m = \(\frac{9}{25}\) > which is around \(\frac{1}{3}\)

w = \(\frac{15}{32}\) > which is around \(\frac{1}{2}\)

Together m & w would constitute around \(\frac{5}{6}\), so the remaining c would be around \(\frac{1}{6}\) which is far less than m & w

Increasing order: c, m w

Answer = A

Bunuel, Kindly update the OA :)

One can solve this one using 2 methods.

Method 1
- See the way PAresh did it. I've solved this the same when saw this problem in the test.

Mehod 2
\(\frac{9}{25} = \frac{54}{150}\) and \(\frac{15}{32} = \frac{75}{150}\), so \(1-\frac{54}{150}-\frac{75}{150}\), so it's evident that c<m<w

Answer A
