A) In 1999 Comapny X's gross profit was 1/3 of its expenses.
B) In 1999 Company X's expenses were 3/4 of its revenue.


profit = rev - exp, what is p/r
from 1
p =1/3e ,
rev = 1/3+1 e = 4/3 e, thus p/r = (1/3e)/(4/3e)...suff

from 2

1- In 1999 Company X's gross profit was 1/3 of its expenses.

2- In 1999 Company X's expenses were 3/4 of its revenue.




Requests: If anyone has the time or will, please elaborate on how to set these equations up and whether plugging in numbers will work well on a problem like this. I originally picked B, but was not sure whether C was the correct answer. Turns up the correct answer is .

Thanks

To solve this problem we can consider below equation:
revenue - expenditure = profit,
we need to find out what percent of revenue was profit.

Option 1 : we know profit was 1/3 rd of expense so this information is sufficient to find out the ratio of revenue to profit

Option 2: Similar to option 1 we can find out.

So the answer is D.
