Question Stats:

0% (00:00) correct 0% (00:00) wrong based on 0 sessions
this is the exact question (including the typo)

If a 10 percent deposit that has been paid toward the purchase of a certain product is $110 how much more remains to he paid?

(A) $880
(B) $900
(C) $1000
(D) $1100
(E) $1210


i assume the answer is 990 and there was a typo, just as the "he" was supposed to be "be"

I agree. 990 makes sense even though it's in none of the answer choices.

Guys

The answer is A

10% = 110 => 100% = 990

110 is already paid !!

remaining to be paid = 990 - 110 = 880 !!

!! They have already paid the deposit remember !!

IMHO :

10% = 110 => 100% = 990 is false : 10% = 110 => 100% = 1100

Hence remaining to be paid = 1100 - 110 = 990

Agree ! 10% of 990 = 99 not 110

the answer should have been 990.
