Choose total revenue to be a convenient number such as 90.

1/3 of its revenue (90) last quarter from foreign clients =30.

one-fourth of their revenue from out-of-state clients = 1/4 * 60 =15


In state clients revenue = 90 - (15+30) = 45. 45 is 50% of 90.

Hence option D= 50 is the answer.

(1) Remaining revenue is 1- (1/3) = 2/3

(2) 'Out of State' is 1/4 of the remaing revenue so 'In-State' is 1- (1/4) = 3/4

(3) (2/3) * (3/4) = 1/2 = 50%

Let total revenue, R = $12
(LCM of the fractions' denominators)

1) 1/3 of R from foreign investors:
1/3 of $12 = $4
$(12 - 4) = $8 remain

2) 1/4 of remaining R from out-of-state investors:
1/4 of $8 = $2
$(8 - 2) = $6 remain

3) The rest [of R] from in-state investors = $6

Percent of revenue from in-state clients:
\(\frac{InStateR}{TotalR}=\frac{$6}{$12}=.50*100=50\) percent

Answer D

Lets take total revenue as 12.

1/3 of client is foreign- 4 clients
1/4 of remaining is out of state - 2
Remaining is in state clients = 12-(4+2) = 6

6 is 50% of 12.

Ans D

(2/3)*(3/4)=1/2
Means 50 percent
