Jack initially had 40 tickets.. 60% of the tickets have the image of princess ... Which means 60%{40} = 24 tickets have the princess image .

Jack's father gave him additional 60 tickets , out of which 25% doesn't have princess image on the ticket... Therefore 75% of the tickets will have the princess image =>75%{60} = 45

Total tickets = 100
Tickets with the princess image (24+45)
Percentage = 69/100*100= 69% .. option D

Hi,
I misread first and chose E. :|

3/5 of 40 have Lisa’s image = 24
1/4 do not. I.e. 3/4 of 60 have = 45

Total % = 69/100 = 69%

Option D.

Thanks

E. None of these



% required: Tickets with princes Lisa'a image / Total tickets.

Tickets with princes Lisa's image:

40 * 06 = 24

60 * 0.75 = 45

Total tickets with image = 24 + 45 = 69.

Total tickets = 40 + 60 = 100.

% required = (69 / 100)*100 = 69.

D is the correct answer.
