35% of all managers = 42 Managers who have earned MBA.
All Managers= 42*100/35= 120.
D is correct choice.

Suppose there are total X Managers

35% of X Managers are Managers with MBA ,which is equivalent to 42

So 35% of X = 42
X = 42 * 100/35
X = 120

Choice D is correct

Solution

Given:
• 35% of the managers have an MBA
• The number of managers with MBA = 42

To find:
• The total number of managers

Approach and Working:
• 35% of total managers = 42
• Thus, total number of managers = $$42 * \frac{100}{35} = 120$$

Hence, the correct answer is Option D

35% represents 42 managers

1 % represents 42/35 managers

100 % represents (42/35)*100 = 120.

We can let m = the number of managers and create the equation:

0.35m = 42

m = 42/0.35 = 120
