what i think is your interpretation would be correct if the statement said, “machine filled 1/3 of the order before 10:40 a.m.”

Hi, for this question, I was wondering does anyone of you saw a quick scan/analysis from the chart instead of the doing the long calculations?

Re: Data Insights Question of the Day [#permalink]
didn’t we need to multiply (2*5)+(8*9)+.../60 ?

since there are for example 2 vaccinations on day one... really hard time to understand

Re: Data Insights Question of the Day [#permalink]
nope because total count of vaccination is 60 and that too happening only for 15 days so vaccination per day is 60/15

Re: Data Insights Question of the Day [#permalink]
hi all, does any one have a quicker way to solve this MSR question : marketers-theorize-that-consumers-purchase-decisions-are-driven-by-384470.html

I took way too much time to solve even the 1st questions(~5 mins) to calculate all the attribute and benefits and cost values, which I feel is too error prone

but I was not able to figure out a straightforward way of answering the questions without doing that either

Re: Data Insights Question of the Day [#permalink]
you need to calculate all no other way. as it requires comparison

Calculations are fairly simple

Re: Data Insights Question of the Day [#permalink]
Hmm yeah, thought so. But I felt there was an easier way or observation I was missing out on. Thanks for the help!

Also, for such questions - how do you decide when you need to get down to the math and start calculating? As there are obviously questions where they trick you out and even if 1st instinct is to go for calculations, you can get by without ever doing them..
