Sailor = 1/88 * Officer
Sailor/Officer = 1.88/1 = 188/100 = 47/25

Answer will be C

Let number of officers be = 100
Number of sailors is 88% more than the number of officers = 188% of 100 = \(\frac{188}{100}\) x 100 = 188

Ratio of sailors to officers = \(\frac{188}{100}\) = \(\frac{47}{25}\) = 47:25
Answer C...

Let number of officers = a

From stem sailors = \((1 + \frac{88}{100})*a = \frac{47}{25}*a\)

Hence - Sailors : Officers = 47:25

Answer choice C

    • The above information can be easily written as –

      o Number of Sailors \(= (1 + \frac{88}{100})\)* Number of Officers

      o Number of Sailors \(= \frac{47}{25}\) * Number of Officers

      o Number of Sailors: Number of Officers \(= 47: 25\)

    • Thus, the correct answer is Option C.
