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 \(\frac{1}{8} = 12.5\)%
IMO. B

dividing by 1000 and rounding up,
0+9+36+28+2/5 = 75/5 = 12%

No. of Fellows = 9,209 Total members = 75,077 Percentage of Fellows = 9,209/75,077 = 9,200/75,000 approximately ~ 12%. Ans (B).

IMO. B +1 Kudos... Better approach to this Q 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
