We are given the ratios of calls is same as number of days..
let the common ratio be x..
so ratio of calls =20x:17x:19x..
given the sum of calls=168=20x+17x+19x
or x=3..
therefore calls in Aug=3*19=57

As the number of sale calls(S) is directly proportional to the number of days worked(W)
We can write- S=k*w where k is constant

Given s= 168
W=20+17+19=56
S=k*w
168=k*56
K=3

Asked: what is S when W is 19
S=3*19=57

The total number of days worked in the 3-month period is 20 + 17 + 19 = 56. If we let n = the number of calls made in August, we can create the equation:

168/56 = n/19

3 = n/19

57 = n

Answer: D
