Of the people who attended a company meeting, 60% were stockholders and 80% were employees. What percent were stockholders, who were not employees?

lets assume total 100 people.
stockholders = 60% of 100 = 60
employees= 80% of 100 = 80



(1) 5/6 of the stockholders are also employees.
60 * (5/6) stockholders are also employees
50 stockholders are also employees
stockholders who are not employees = 60 - 50 = 10
percent of stockholders who are not employees = (10/60) * 100

Sufficient

(2) 10% of the people attended the meeting are neither stockholders not employees.
10 % of 100 people attended the meeting are neither stockholders not employees

Total = shareholder + employee - (both stockholder and employee) + ( neither stockholders not employees)
100 = 60 + 80 - (both stockholder and employee) + 10
both stockholder and employee = 50
stockholders who are not employees = 60 - 50 = 10
percent of stockholders who are not employees = (10/60) * 100

Sufficient

let total people = 100
table is
a.

------S --- !S ---
E--- 50----30----80

!E---10---10-----20

----60----40-----100
sufficient.

b follows the similar pattern with !S !E = 10 provided.
sufficient.

D it is.
