Question Stats:

0% (00:00) correct 0% (00:00) wrong based on 0 sessions
In a school election, if each of the 900 voters voted for either Edith or Jose (but not both), what percent of the female voters in this election voted for Jose?
(1) Eighty percent of the female voters voted for Edith.
(2) Sixty percent of the male voters voted for Jose.











The way I see it is 80% voted for E so what's left is 20%. Hence A. But this sounds too easy and I want to see if this is right or is there any other answer or mayb the answer key has some typo. Comments?

vote for A,

same reasoning.

B is INSUFF, in addition to the given info, to find percentage of women votes for Jose, we need total number of either men (women), ratios....
