Question 83

# Total number of employees in Company E was 3 times the total number of employees in Company B. If the difference between number of Commerce graduate employees in Company E and that in Company B was 300, what was the total number of employees in Company B ?

Solution

Let total no. of employees in company B = 100x

=> total employees in company E = 3*100x = 300x

% of commerce grads in company E = 100-(50+30) = 20%

% of commerce gads in company B = 100-(40+25) = 35%

No. of commerce grads in company E = (20/100)*300x = 60x

No. of commerce grads in company B = (35/100)*100x = 35x

Difference in the no. of commerce grads in both companies = 60x - 35x = 25x = 300 (given)

=> x =300/25 = 12

Total no. of employees in company B = 100*12 = 1200
