Question 30

# Suppose, size M constitutes 22% of all the T-Shirts owned by T-nation. It is also given that ‘size M T-shirt’ in stores 1, 2 and 5 are 10% of the total T-shirts in these stores. Then, the total number of T-Shirts of size M in store 4 cannot be less than

Solution

Total number of T shirts in all stores = 450+480+440+280+350 = 2000

Number of T shirts of size M = 2000*22/100 = 440

Total no of T shirts in store 1 = 111+69+85+128+57 = 450

Total no of T shirts in store 2 = 48+116+137+55+84 = 440

Total no of T shirts in store 5 = 80+105+108+65+122 = 480

Number of T shirts of size M in store 1,2 and 5  = (450+440+480)*10/100 = 137

T shirts of size M in store 3 and 4 = 440 -137 = 303

The number of T shirts of size M will be minimum in store 4 if the number of T shirts of size M will be maximum in store 3.

The number of T shirts of size M in store 3 = 280 (if all T shirts in store 3 are size M)

The number of T shirts of size M in store 4 = 303-280 = 23
