Number of people who were not pleased with the administration's handling of affairs in the country = 88000 * 0.4 * 0.8

= 880 * 32 = 28,160

Answer is C. 28,160

Answer: C

Only 40% of the users returned the survey i.e. 35,200 returned the survey.

out of these 35,200 people 20% indicated they were happy, so it will imply that 80% indicated that they were not happy.

therefore, 80% of 35,200 i.e. 28,160 will be the answer.

Of those that returned the survey, 20% indicated that they were pleased with the way the current administration is handling domestic and foreign affairs for the country. How many people who returned the survey did not indicate they were pleased with the administration's handling of affairs in the country?

A. 35,200
B. 32,430
C. 28,160
D. 16,820
E. 7,440

Total voters = 88000
People who returned survey = 40% of 88000 = \(\frac{40}{100}\) x 88000 = 35200
People who are happy with current administration = 20% of 35200 = \(\frac{20}{100}\) x 35200 = 7040
People who indicate they were not pleased with administration = 80% of 35200 = \(\frac{80}{100}\) x 35200 = 28160
Or
People who indicate they were not pleased with administration = Total voters - People who are happy with administration = 88000 - 7040 = 28160
Answer C...
