A store has 500 kgs of tea in stock, 30 percent of which is dust. If the store adds another 200 kgs of tea of which 40 percent is dust, approximately what percent, by weight, of the store’s tea contains dust?

(A) 31%
(B) 33%
(C) 34%
(D) 35%
(E) 47%

IMO B...
% dust from 500 kgs, 30% ,150 kgs
% dust from 200 kgs, 40%, 80 kgs
Total tea 700 kgs and dust 230 kgs

Dust % 230/700 ~33%..
