0.16667 = 1/6
0.3333 = 1/3
0.2222 = 2/9
0.6667 = 2/3
0.125 = 1/8
0.8333 = 5/6

Substituting this,

9*3*8*5/6*3*6*2*2 = 5/2 = 2.5

We can see that,

0.16667 = 1/6 , 0.3333 = 1/3 , 0.2222 = 2/9, 0.6667 = 2/3 , 0.125 = 1/8 , 0.8333 = 5/6

Side note: If one does not remember, quick way to find these out would be as follows: Let x = 0.22222, 10*x = 2.22222, so 10*x - x = 2
Hence 9x = 2, or x = 2/9

If we substitute back we get 2.5 as the answer.

Hope that helps.

Project PS Butler : Question #11

rounded 0.16 to 0.2 --> 1/5

80/100 = 4/5

30/100 = 3/10

= 1/5*4/5*3/10 = 12/ 250

0.2222 = 2/10 = 1/5

0.6667 = 7/10

0.125 = 1/8

1/5*7/10*1/8 = 7/400

12/250 *400/7 = 96/35 = 2.7

Closest to 2.7 is Option D 2.5

I ball parked the given values to 0.16 * 0.8 * 0.3 / ( 0.2 * 0.6 * 0.12)

When divided will give 8/3

Nearest to D
