B in Autos (50% of 200 + 10% of 100 = 110) and Textile ( 30% of 200 + 20% of 100 = 80) are greater than 75 million hence 2

Hi All,

In this question, we're looking for the categories in which the TOTAL imports and exports are at least $75 million. The math involved is really just arithmetic, but we have to make sure that we keep careful track of each category. There is a minor 'shortcut' in this question though:
between the two pie charts, there is a total of $300 million; you might notice after your first two calculations that there's not enough money left for either of the final 2 categories to total $75 million.


Autos: (50% of $200 mill) + (10% of $100 mill) = $110 million
Textiles: (30% of $200 mill) + (20% of $100 mill) = $80 million
Food: (5% of $200 mill) + (40% of $100 mill) = $50 million
Tech: (15% of $200 mill) + (30% of $100 mill) = $60 million

Final Answer:

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich

In how many categories did the total number of items (import and export) exceed 75 million?

(A) 1
(B) 2
(C) 3
(D) 4
(E) none
======================
Solution:

75 = 37.5% of 200
75 = 7.5% 0f 100
combined import and export = 45%
adding the percentage of import and export of all categories should be greater than 45%.
This is true in case of Autos and Textiles.

Therefore, 2 is the answer (B).
Please let me know your views.

The import and export exceeds in case of 'Autos' and 'Textiles' only.

Cheers.

The combined autos is 200 x 0.5 + 100 x 0.1 = 100 + 10 = 110 million

The combined textiles is 200 x 0.3 + 100 x 0.2 = 60 + 20 = 80 million

The combined food is 200 x 0.05 + 100 x 0.4 = 10 + 40 = 50 million

The combined tech is 200 x 0.15 + 100 x 0.3 = 30 + 30 = 60 million

Thus, 2 categories exceeded 75 million.

Answer: B
