1) Shortcut: Day 1 is 20% = \(1.2=\frac{6}{5}\)*Day 3

Day 3's number must be divisible by 5
That leaves answers B and D

Eliminate B) 5,190: Here, Day 1 is 2+ times greater than B, not 1/5 greater than

Answer D
(If you backsolved, i.e., used answer choice * 6/5, the shortcut would be evident quickly)

2) Equation

Day 1 attendance is 20% greater than Day 3
Day 1 = 1.2*(Day3)
Let x = Day 3 attendance

\(11,418 = 1.2x\)
\((\frac{11,148}{1.2})=(\frac{114,180}{12})=x\)
\(x = 9,515\)


Answer D

We can let attendance on the final day = n and create the equation:

11,418 = 1.2n

9,515 = n

Answer: D

Let a be the attendance of crowd on Day 3.
Day 1 = 1.2a = 6/5a

6a/5 = 11, 418
a = 11,418 * 5/6

No need to perform the division, we can see that 18/6 = 3 so we will get xxx3 *5 thus we are looking for unit digit of 5 in the answer choice thus

Attendance of Day 1 = 120% of Attendance of Final day

11418 = 120% of Attendance of Final day

So, Attendance of Final day = 9515, Answer must be (D)

Let x be the attendance on Day - 3.

Day 1 attendance = 1.2x
=> 11418 =1.2x

x = 9515
