At a particular business school, 70% of the students are applying for banking jobs and 60% are applying for consulting jobs. What is the maximum percentage of students who are not applying for either banking or consulting jobs?

A. 20%
B. 30%
C. 40%
D. 50%
E. 60%


We'll solve this question by drawing an axis.
This is a Precise approach.

Looking at our drawings (below) we can SEE that the maximum students in neither category is 30%.
Note that this is a very easy question but the technicque of drawing an axis is useful for much harder questions as well.

(B) is our answer.
