Hey guys I was working on the Homework of Veritas Prep Arimethic Book and the solution for question #73 doesn't makes sense:

The book argue the answer is C! That just doesn't makes any sense.

Any comments?

Are you sure that you checked the answer key correctly? I just signed up for Veritas (haven't started yet, not until March) but I have access to the materials and the answer key I'm looking at says "E."

73. Which of the following values is the greatest?

a) 11% of 89
b) 22% of 78
c) 33% of 67
d) 44% of 56
e) 55% of 45

hi,

the best way to solve this question is to keep the percentages same. i.e. 22% of 78 is same as 11% of 156, so lets begin our quest

a) 11% of 89
b) 11% of 156
c) 11% of 201
d) 11% of 224
e) 11% of 225

as we can see option E, has the highest value for 11% , hence the answer must be E.

Maybe they corrected the answer in the new book. Image attached.

A) 89*11/100
B) 78*2*11/100
C) 67*3*11/100
D) 56*4*11/100
E) 45*5*11/100
Now, 89 < 78*2 < 67*3 < 56*4 < 45*5
