We are asked for the value of x.

From the table: 2x/3 = y - 50

y - 50 + (y/4) = 50

5y/4 = 100

y = 80

2x/3 = 80 - 50 = 30

x = 90/2 = 45

Answer: A

Hi

How come the value of Not Analysts with MBA be 2x/3.

There is nothing as such mentioned about that??

hi..

the Q talks about hedge workers..

x of them have done MBA....

**Quote:**

A total of x hedge fund workers have an MBA.

x/3 analyst have MBA

**Quote:**

Furthermore, x/3 analysts have an MBA

so remaining MBA are NOT analysts = \(x-\frac{x}{3}=\frac{2x}{3}\)
