Hi vikasp99,

This prompt is essentially just about doing some basic arithmetic and taking the necessary notes to stay organized.

We're told that a collector has 1,100 cards that are in mint condition and 400 cards that are not. Then we're told that of those cards in mint condition, 60 percent are rookie
cards....

Mint (total = 1100)
-Rookie = (60% of 1100) = 660
-Not Rookie = (40% of 1100) = 440

Not Mint (total = 400)

Next, we're told that 740 of the cards in his collection are NOT rookie cards....

Since we know that 440 of the Mint cards are NOT rookie cards, then the remaining "NOT rookie" cards have to be in the Not Mint category). 740 - 440 = 300

Not Mint (total = 400)
-Not Rookie = 300
-Rookie = 100

We're asked for the number of cards in the collection that are rookie cards but NOT in mint condition?

Final Answer:

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
