If 25% of a company's employees are women older than 30, what percent of the men employees are 30 or younger?
(1) Half of the women employees are 30 or younger.
(2) 35% of the company's employees are men of 30 or younger.
I think the answer to this question is incorrect in the tests.
I think it E but its given as C. Can somebody help ?
Posting a tabulated form -
Given,
W/M.....>30.......<=30
W..........25...........a.........100-m
M............b...........x............m
.......................................100
Required, x/m * 100 = ?
1)
W/M...... >30.............<=30
W............25...........0.5(100-m).............(100-m)
M..............b..................x.........................m
..............................................................100
Implies 25 = 0.5(100-m) Or m = 50 & (100-m) = 50
Table becomes as below
W/M.......>30............<=30
W............25................50.................50
M................................x...................50
......................................................100
No info of x, hence insuff.
2)
W/M.......>30..............<=30
W............25............0.5(100-m)............(100-m)
M...............................x = 35....................m
..............................................................100
But no info about about m, hence insuff.
Together (1 & 2), m = 50, x = 35
W/M.......>30...........<=30
W............25...............50...................50
M...............................35...................50
.......................................................100
35/50 * 100 = 70%
Answer: C
Wasn't able to create proper tables.
