Let the Avg for 11 months be X..
then total sale for 11 months =11x
sale for the left out month = x(1+4)=5x

% = 5x/16x *100= 31 (approx.)

lets say the store sold 100 units per month
total units sold for 11 months = 1100 units
this month he sold 400% more = 500 units
total sale for the year = 1100+500=1600 units
that is
(5/16)*100 = 31.25%

An electrical appliances store sold this month 400% more than the average of all the other months in the year. The sales total for this month was approximately what percent of total sales for this year?

A. 14%.
B. 21%.
C. 31%.
D. 37%.
E. 43%.


Say, the average sales for all the other months (11 months) of the year is x.
So, the total sales of those 11 months will be= 11x

Now, this month's sales, which is 400% more than the average of other months' sales, is 5x, (x+400% of x).

Thus, this months' sales are (5x/16x)*100=31.25% of the total yearly sales. [Total sales=11x+5x=16x]

Answer is B
