Study the following table carefully and answer the questions given below it:Number of Different categories of vehicles sold in the country over the years (in thousands)

If the same percentage increase in the number of Heavy Vehicle as in 1994 over 1993 is expected in 1995, approximately how many heavy vehicles will be sold in 1995?

a

141

b

156

c

176

d

181

correct answer a

In this question, by referring the table chart, first we need to calculate the increase(in percentage) in sale of Heavy Vehicle in 1994 over 1993

Heavy Vehicle sold in 1993 = 81
Heavy Vehicle sold in 1993 = 107

Increase = 107 - 81 = 26

Now 26 is what percent of 81 ?

(2681100)%=32% aprox.



So increase in sale were 32% in 1994, so get the answer we need to calculate the 132% of 107.

132100107=141.24
