30 percent of tourists ride bicycles and have beverages. If 60 percent of the tourists riding bicycles do not have beverages, what percent of the total number of tourists are without bicycles?

(A) 10%

(B) 20%

(C) 25%

(D) 30%

(E) 40%

If we have 100 tourists, 30 of them both have beverages and ride bicycles.

If 60% of the tourists riding bicycles do not have beverages, 40% of the tourists riding bicycles is 30.

The total members having bicycles can be calculated as follows:

If \(40\)% is \(30\) and \(100\)% is x, then x = \(30*\frac{100}{40} = 15*5 = 75\)

Therefore, 25 tourists have no bicycles and this represents \(\frac{25}{100}\) or \(25\)% of the tourists

(Option C)
