At a local modeling agency with 500 models, 300 have green eyes and the rest have blue eyes = 200 models

If 400 of the models are over six feet tall and

ten percent of the blue eyed models are less than six feet tall, 90% is over six feet tall.
90% of 200 = 180 are over six feet tall.

the green eyed models that are over six feet tall = 400-180 = 220

Answer is E

E is the answer

Green are 300 and blue are 200.

Out of 200 blue ones 90% are above 6 ft which is 180.

Total above 6 ft are 400.

So Green and above 6 ft are 400- 180 = 220

Can be solved using double matrix


6FT <6FT TOTAL
GREEN 220 80 300

BLUE 20 200

TOTAL 400 100 500


First fill in numbers which are given, total green eyed 300, blue eyed 200, 6ft models: 400
Now we fill 100 , to make total 500. now 100 models less than 6ft.

10% of 200 is 20, so blue eyed < 6 ft 20
less than 6ft = 80,,

Required: 300-80 = 220, Green eyed+ 6ft

IMO E

ANS: E (220)

Total: 500
Green eyes: 300
Blue eyes: 200

Models over 6 feet: 400
Models less than 6 feet: 100

Blue eyes models less than 6 feet: 0.10 *200 = 20
Green eyes models less than 6 feet: 80 (as total less than 6 feet tall models are 100)

Green eyes models over 6 feet: 300-80 = 220

Hope it helps..

A. 20
B. 80
C. 100
D. 180
E. 220


90% of the blue-eyed models are over 6 feet tall = 200* .9 = 180
Rest 6 feet tall models = 220, who are green-eyed
E is the answer.
