1) Goalies make up \(\frac{1}{12}\) of the team.
2) The team has 9 midfielders.


So number of defense players is given and number of attackers is not given as such but given as a fraction (1/4) of total. So rest of the team apart from attackers = 1 - 1/4 = 3/4 of total, out of which 7 players are defense.

(1) Out of remaining 3/4, goalies are 1/12, so that means apart from attackers and goalies, remaining players (defense + midfeld) are 3/4 - 1/12 = 8/12 or 2/3. So defense + midfield constitute 2/3 of the team, out of which 7 players are defense. But this is not sufficient to find the total number of players.

(2) 9 midfield, 7 defense, and attackers = 1/4 of total. But this information is also not sufficient to determine the total number of players.

Combining the statements, midfield = 9, defense = 7, these are 16 in total. Goalies + attackers = 1/4 + 1/12 = 1/3 of total, so that means midfield + defense must constitute 2/3 of total, but these are 16 in number. So 2/3 of total = 16 , hence total = 24 players. Sufficient.

Thus C answer

None of statement is correct

Combining both

x=9+7+x/4+x/12

Calculate x so answer is C

Dear Moderator,
Can we tag this question as Fractions/ratios/Decimals rather than Percent and interest Problems?
Thank you.
