The following information is about the consumption of bread in five towns - A, B, C, D and E. Town A consumes a quarter of the total quantity of bread sold in all the five cities. The bread consumption of Town B is one-fourth of the consumption of Town C. The bread consumption of Town D is 12% of the total whereas Town E consumes 23% of the total.

There are only two companies - Bonbon and Modern - that sell bread in these five towns. The bar graph shows the sales of Bon-bon as a percentage of the total sale of bread in each city.

What was the total consumption of Bonbon bread in Towns A and B during a particular week when the total consumption of bread in Town D was 3600 loaves?

Options

  • 5144

  • 6138

  • 7605

  • 4368

Solution

6138

Explanation:

The correct option is (2). According to the information given, The total consumption of bread in Town D was 12% which is equivalent to 3600 loaves. Therefore, the total consumption of bread in Town A can be calculated as: 

`3600/12 xx 25 = 7500` loaves and the total consumption of bread in Town B can be calculated as :

`3600/12 xx 8 = 2400`

The consumption of Bonbon bread in Town A 

`58.24/100 xx 7500 = 4368`

and the consumption of Bonbon bread in Town B 

`73.75/100 xx 2400 = 1770`

Hence, total consumption of Bonbon bread in Town A and Town B is (4368 + 1770) = 6138 loaves.
