hello, I was just wandering if anyone could answer this question? Question, to meet a government requirement, a bottler must test 5% of its spring water and 10% of its sparkling water for purity. If a customer ordered 120 cases of spring water and 80 cases of sparkling water, what percent of all the cases must the bottler test before he can send it out? I got the answer 7.5% and not 8% like the answer key says. Thanks

I am getting the answer as 7%

5% of 120 = 6
10% of 80 = 8

14 of 200 = 7%

Thanks for responding. Maybe this practice test was just plain wrong.
