Among all sales staff at Listco Corporation, college graduates and those without college degrees are equally represented . Each sales staff member is either a level-1 or level-2 employee. Level-1 college graduates account for 15% of Listco's sales staff. Listco employs 72 level-1 employees, 30 of whom are college graduates. How many sales staff members without college degrees are level-2 employees ?

(A) 46

(B) 42

(C) 56

(D) 32

(E) 58

since both with degree and without degree are equally represented means they are equal in number = let say =\(x\)

hence total will be =\(x+x = 2x\)

now level 1 \(30\) are with

degree therefore

without degree =\(72 - 30 = 42\)

now this 30 = 15 % of total =\(\frac{15}{100} X 2x\)

on solving we get \(x= 100\)

now if \(42\) without degree are in level 1...therefore no. of without degree in level 2 = \(x - 42 = 100 - 42 = 58\)

hence E
