You should do the math: $$\frac{190}{800}*100=\frac{190}{8}=\frac{95}{4}\approx{24}$$. _________________ Manager Joined: 11 Feb 2014 Posts: 61 Followers: 0 Kudos [?]: 50 [1] , given: 25 Re: For each of her sales, a saleswoman receives a commission eq [#permalink] ### Show Tags 20 Jul 2014, 22:26 1 This post received KUDOS Can we move this question out of "Geometry" topic/tag?

I missed this question and chose C, because I approximated 1.9/8 to be 2/8=25%. Next time, I should look at the answer choices first and then see whether I need to do the math.
