SOLUTION

When 1/10 percent of 5,000 is subtracted from 1/10 of 5,000, the difference is

(A) 0
(B) 50
(C) 450
(D) 495
(E) 500

1/10 of 5,000 is 500;
1/10 percent of 5,000 is 100 times smaller than the above, so it's 5;

Thus the difference is 500-5=495.

Answer: D.

=5000*(1/10)%=5

=5000(1/10)=500

= 500-5 = 495

Practice Questions
Question: 8
Page: 153
Difficulty: 550



x/5000 = (1/10)/100

x/5000 = 1/1000

x=5

1/10 0f 5000 -- 500

then 500-5 =495... understood completely after getting the answer wrongly :cry:

Equation to be setup is:

\frac{5000}{10} - \frac{5000 * 1}{100 * 10} = 500 - 5 = 495

Answer = D
