 What was the difference in the number of B type mobiles produced in 2007 and 2008?

View Hint View Answer Discuss in Forum
Required difference = The number of B type mobiles produced in 2007  The number of B type mobiles produced in 2008
Correct Option: A
Given: The total production of mobile phones in 2007 = 35 Lakh
The total production in 2008 = 44 Lakh
Percentage of B type mobiles produced in 2007 = 20%
Percentage of B type mobiles produced in 2008 = 15%
Required difference = The number of B type mobiles produced in 2007  The number of B type mobiles produced in 2008
Required difference = ( The total production in 2008 x Percentage of B type mobiles produced in 2007 )  ( The total production of mobile phones in 2007 x Percentage of B type mobiles produced in 2008 )
= 44 x 20%  35 x 15%= 44 x 20  35 x 15 100 100 = 880  525 = 355 Million = 355000 100 100
 If 85% of the D type mobiles produced in each year were sold by the company, how many D type mobiles remained unsold?

Required answer = The total production of mobile phones in 2007 of 10% of 15% + The total production in 2008 of 10% of 15%
Correct Option: C
Given: The total production of mobile phones in 2007 = 35 Lakh
The total production in 2008 = 44 Lakh
If 85% of the D type mobiles are sold , so 15% remain unsold.
Required answer = The total production of mobile phones in 2007 of 10% of 15% + The total production in 2008 of 10% of 15%= 35 x 10 x 15 + 44 x 10 x 15 Million 100 100 100 100 = 150 x 79 = 1.1850 Million 10000
=118500
 For which models was the percentage variation in production from 2007 to 2008 the maximum?

In Model ,
Percentage Variation= Total increase x 100% Production in 2008
Correct Option: D
As per given table , we can see that
For A , Production in 2007 = 40 , Production in 2008 = 30
Total increase = Production in 2007  Production in 2008
= 40  30 = 10
In Model ,
Percentage Variation= Total increase x 100% Production in 2008 Model A ⇒ 10 x 100 = 33 1 30 3
Simillarly , For B , Production in 2007 = 20 , Production in 2008 = 15
Total increase = Production in 2007  Production in 2008
= 20  15 = 5Model B ⇒ 5 x 100 = 33 1 15 3
For C , Production in 2007 = 15 , Production in 2008 = 20
Total increase = Production in 2007  Production in 2008
= 15  20 = 5Model C ⇒ 5 x 100 =  25 20
Hence required answer will be A and B models.
 If the percentage production of A type mobiles in 2008 was same as that in 2007, then the number of A type mobiles produced in 2008 would have been
