m = \(\frac{9}{25}\) > which is around \(\frac{1}{3}\) w = \(\frac{15}{32}\) > which is around \(\frac{1}{2}\) Together m & w would constitute around \(\frac{5}{6}\), so the remaining c would be around \(\frac{1}{6}\) which is far less than m & w Increasing order: c, m w Answer = A Bunuel, Kindly update the OA

Ans e wmc
w = 15/32 ~0.4
m = 9/24 = 0.36
c = 1  (w + m) ~ 0.24
so w m c in descending order another everything I do after 1 AM I seem to miss
ascending: c m w..

Answer a  c, m, w
m ~ 1/3
w ~ 1/2
and m+w+c = 1 hence c ~ 1/6
Hence increasing order would be c > m > w

I did not read the question right.. *** warning*** and thought it was asking for descending.. Like I said at 1 AM .. everything seems upside down..

If m = 9/25, w = 15/32, and m + w+ c = 1, which of the following gives the values of m, w, c in increasing order?
a.c, m, w
b.c, w, m
c.m,w,c
d.w,c,m
e.w,m,c
w is approx = half
m is approx = 0.4
thus sure
a is the answer increasing order ( c<m<w)

Yes, decimals work faster than common denominators here. E would be correct if the question asked for DESCENDING order.

m = 9/25 = 0.36 w = 15/32 = 0.4 On substituting C = 0.24 c , m , w

A. c, m, w B. c, w, m C. m, w, c D. w, c, m E. w, m, c One can solve this one using 2 methods. Method 1  See the way PAresh did it. I've solved this the same when saw this problem in the test. Mehod 2 \(\frac{9}{25} = \frac{54}{150}\) and \(\frac{15}{32} = \frac{75}{150}\), so \(1\frac{54}{150}\frac{75}{150}\), so it's evident that c<m<w Answer A

Hi, Since we are going to use a lot of percent to decimal to fraction conversion, best is to convert in to % and compare. Well lets see how the fractions fair in terms of "%" so "m"= \(\frac{9}{25}\) is 36%. w= \(\frac{15}{32}\)< \(\frac{15}{30}\) \(\frac{1}{30}\) is close to 3.33% \(\frac{15}{32}\) is 46% so c =100(36+46)= 18% 19<36<45 c<m<w Probus
