A restaurant spends one quarter of its monthly budget for rent and half of the rest for food and beverages. What percentage of the budget does the restaurant spend for food and beverages?

A. 23.5%
B. 32.5%
C. 35%
D. 37.5%
E. 75%

Say total = 100
25 for rent.
Half of rest = 75/2 = 37.5 for food and beverages.

Spending on food and beverages = 37.5 D

let the total budget be 100
as per the question ,
restaurant spends one quarter of its monthly budget for rent = 25
half of the rest for food and beverages = 75/2 =37.5
therefore, percentage spent on food and beverage = 37.5

D. 37.5%
E. 75%


Spend on rent = 1/4

Spend on food and beverage= 1/2 of remaining = 1/2*3/4= 3/8

1/8= 12.5%, so 3/8= 37.5%

D is the answer

This question could be very easily solve by assuming total = 100

Discard the previous one..

Assuming total = 100
Spend on rent = 25
Remaining = 100-25 =75
Half of 75 = 37.5( for food and beverages)
