Fellows = 9209
Total Membership = 78 + 9209 + 35509 + 27909 + 2372 = Approx (0+9200+35500+28000+2370) = Approx. 75000

Fellows as % of total Membership = 9200*100/75000 = 12.26 = 12%

First, I checked the answer choices to know what the spacing is before I went to calculate the answer. Since they were spread somewhat, I could be a bit more generous in my estimation for each number.
[not large enough, thus 0] $$+ 10000 + 35000 + 28000 + 2000 = 75000$$

$$\frac{10000>}{75000>}$$ =~$$\frac{1}{8}$$
Little less than $$10000$$ divided by little less than $$75000$$ is $$\frac{1}{8} = 12.5$$%

Roundup to the thousand

so we have 9+35+28+2 = 75
9/75x100 = 12

OFFICIAL SOLUTION:

From the table, the number of fellows is 9,209, and the total membership is the sum of the 5 numbers, which is 75,077. Therefore, the number of fellows is 9,209/75,077 of the total membership, or approximately 12 percent. The best answer is B.

Hi,
the answer choices are given in a way that we dont require to get into extensive calculations..

fellows= 9000 approx..
total = 3500+28000+2000=65000..
so 9000/65000..

lets see the choices..
A. 9%
B. 12%
C. 18%
D. 25%
E. 35%

What can be the broad limits of x..
1) The value has to be greater than 9%, as the denominator is 65,000.. for 9% it should have been 100,000.. so A out..
2) the value has to be smaller than 18%, as the denominator should be less than 50,000 ... so C,D and E are out

only B 12% is left

Nice Official Question.
Here is what i did =>
Number of fellows => 74999=> 75000(approx)
number of fellows => 9200=> 9000(approx)
Hence required percentage => p(let)
$$\frac{p}{100}*75000=9000$$

p=12

Hence B
