The line chart given below shows the ratio of production to sales ofÂ  two bike-manufacturing firms over the period of 6 years.Â

Assume if in any year sales is more than production then both the companies has sufficient stock to meet such instances.Â

Question 99

# The production of company 1 in year 2014 is 18000 and sales of company 2 in year 2012 is 15000. What is the ratio of difference in sales and production of company 1 in year 2014 and company 2 in year 2012 ?

Solution

ProductionÂ of company 1 in year 2014Â = 18000

Ratio of production to sales = $$\frac{18000}{s}=0.9$$

=> Sales ofÂ company 1 in year 2014Â =Â $$\frac{18000}{0.9}=20000$$

Difference in sales and production = $$20000-18000=2000$$

Similarly,Â sales of company 2 in year 2012 = 15000

Ratio of production to sales = $$\frac{p}{15000}=0.75$$

=> ProductionÂ of company 2 in year 2012 =Â $$0.75\times15000=11250$$

Difference in sales and production = $$15000-11250=3750$$

$$\therefore$$ Required ratio = $$\frac{2000}{3750}=\frac{8}{15}$$

=> Ans - (A)
