In a high school with 500 students, 15% of the students are freshmen. If 50 additional students enroll in the school, how many of those students would have to be freshmen for the number of freshmen to be 20% of the student body?


A 10

B 25

C 35

D 100

E 175


After new students enrollment total student = 500 + 50 = 550.

we want to get 20% freshmen = 550 * 20% = 110.

500 students include 25% freshmen :

500 * 25/100 = 75.

Difference = 110 -75 = 35.

From new students there must be 35 students freshmen in order to keep the freshmen % 20.

C is the correct answer.

500* 15% = 75
new strength 550
550 * .20 = 110
110-75 = 35
