Hi,
100 % = 12,356 so
10 % = 1235.6
1% = 123.56
0.1% = 12.356
0.01% = 1.2356

Hence B

Since, Percent=1/100, what=something(s), and is:=. We can write the question as s=0.01(1/100)12,356. The answer is 1.2356. Hence, the correct answer is B.

- Forget conventional ways of solving math questions. In DS, Variable approach is the easiest and quickest way to find the answer without actually solving the problem. Remember equal number of variables and independent equations ensures a solution.

\(0.01\) percent = \(\frac{0.01}{100}\) = \(0.0001\)

0.0001 * 12,356 = 1.2356

PS : Must say very easy question from MathRevolution this time.. :-D

0.01 % of 12,356 = \(\frac{0.01}{100}\) x 12,356 = \(\frac{1}{100 * 100}\) x 12,356 = \(\frac{12,356}{100 * 100}\) = 1.2356

Let's work our way down to 0.01%

10% of 12356 = 1235.6
1% of 12356 = 123.56
0.1% of 12356 = 12.356
0.01% of 12356 = 1.2356

Answer: B
