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?

• 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.
