Direction : Answer the question on the basis of the information given below.
The table given below shows information about the toys manufactured by 6 different companies. Each company manufactures only two types of toys – vehicles and dolls. Among toy vehicles each company manufactures Cars and Trucks only. The table shows the number of toy vehicles as a percentage of total toys manufactured by each company. It also shows the ratio of Cars and Trucks manufactured. Each company manufactured a total of 50000 toys in a year.
|Company||Toy vehicles||Cars : Trucks|
What is the total number of toy cars manufactured by company T and S together?
The correct answer is 36250.
According to the information given in the table, the number of toy cars manufactured by T and S can be calculated as follows:
|Company||Total vehicles||Cars : Trucks||ToyCars|
|S||70% of 50000 35000||3:1||`therefore 3/4 xx 35000 = 26250`|
|T||40% of 50000 20000||1:1||`therefore 1/2 xx 20000 = 10000`|
∴ Total number of toy cars manufactured by company T and S together = 10000 + 26250 = 36250.
